    Re: Evusheld

    My Rheumy offered it just last week at a follow up and I am scheduled to receive it this Friday. This is at MUSC where most of my doctors are. I’ll update once I receive it because I too had a flare...

    Update: I’m about to get the evushield…spell check that one for me. Then my next round of Rituxan (#2 treatment) is next week. Since this all started I have since been diagnosed with rheumatoid...

    My Rheumy is at MUSC Mt Pleasant. I saw her last Thursday and she strongly recommended I get it. They called me the next day and said I’m scheduled to receive it on the 20th!

    Re: Update: First Round of Rituxan tomorrow

    Pete, they didn’t give me the normal cocktail of meds that I’ve read to be standard. Instead I received 400mg Tylenol and a 50mg Benadryl both orally. The doctor and the nurse said it was odd that I...

    Update: First Round of Rituxan tomorrow

    drz Yes, precisely why I chose the place. Everyone was very explicit about one big thing…once the drip started, if I felt different in any way then when I walked in, I needed to tell them. I was...

    Re: Update: First Round of Rituxan tomorrow

    Update: it was a long non event for the most part. Had a slight throat closing reaction 30 mins in or so and that was addressed with Benadryl. After waiting for that to chill on out, the rest of it...

    Update: First Round of Rituxan tomorrow

    Hey y’all! Hope all of my weggies are resting well. Tomorrow is my first infusion. Can’t say I’m too nervous. I’m usually pretty calm. Expecting a non-event.

    Also, I have a question… anyone have...
  10. Re: Hello everyone! Diagnosed with Wegeners in my early 20s

    Hi Ana banana!
    Welcome to the group! I find a lot of comfort in this forum, and even more knowledge. Sounds like the GPA may be smoldering again if the nose bleeds have started back. Hoping that’s...

    Re: Sinus issues - what to expect?

    My symptoms are basically that my ears and nose feel stuffed up all the time and it feels like a lot of effort to swallow. I've had a bit of vertigo and every night I jolt awake several times while...
  13. Re: Y’all settle in and I’ll make this quick… hopefully

    Biggest question to all:
    How careful are we all needing to be while on Rituxin? I am a homemaker and am fortunate in that regard. However with the holidays upcoming we have one or two who would...
  14. Re: Y’all settle in and I’ll make this quick… hopefully

    DRZ, I’ve read many of your posts as well and have learned a great deal. I appreciate it.

    The septum was the beginning of it. It is now at 7cm. My sinuses are basically a train wreck. However, by...
