    Here are a few (22 is a few??) thoughts about exercise: https://health.clevelandclinic.org/2...nd-your-heart/

    As for me, the program kinda continues. Weather permitting, I walk 2.5-4.0 miles 3-4 times a week. Additionally, my wife and I started a beginner level Silver Sneakers exercise class a few weeks ago. Itís a pretty good workout. We go twice a week. Once the weather gets consistently nice, Iíll be back to landscape maintenance and bad golf

    I see my cardiologist on Thursday and will see what he has to say...

    I have been doing Tai Chi classes for balance, plus another class on balance issues since Wegs destroyed my balance mechanism. The classes have actually helped me as much as the vestibular rehab therapy I did twice. I also do the exercise classes our building holds two or three times a week when I can attend. Plus I signed up for ballroom dance class which is best exercise for balance. In a couple months when the snow melts I can start walking outside again.

    That's great, drz! I should look into tai chi. I took it a long time ago when I was young and had no balance issues. Same with the ballroom dancing. Now I have vertigo at times and am sure it's caused by Wegs, though when it started was before my dx but my ears were bothering me a lot. I can walk Ok but need wide toed and supportive shoes, partly because bad bunions are thrown into the mix. I can barely walk barefoot, it is as though the weight is centered over my heels. I don't suppose tai chi would help the bunions much, but it sure sounds like a lot more fun, and possibly more effective, than vestibular rehabilitation.

    Good for you! I can't wait to get back to exercise! Do yoga, walk 2 miles a day, do exercise videos - anything to keep in shape. Also do many hours of meditation. In miserable mess now - gained weight with relapse (always happens, & w/o prednisone) and will have to work hard to regain fitness.
    Looking forward to appt with Dr. Villa-Forte next week. Have had two Rituxan infusions and they don't appear to be working as yet.

    Tai chi sounds great! So far I've done yoga and meditation which have both helped. I'm a student of the Dalai Lama of Tibet - have taken direct teachings with him four times when living in Los Angeles. He is so inspiring as a human being!

    Our teachers don't have as great of credentials but then we aren't the greatest students either so it works out fine for us. Classes seem fun as well as helpful. We are all a bit surprised about how mentally demanded the exercises are besides the physical demands. Our classes focuses on exercises to develop balance but we probably get the other benefits of Tai chi as well.

    Very funny! i didn't mean to name drop - but I guess I'm guilty! Haven't tried Tai Chi - just intense Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and meditation. Mindfulness practice as taught by His Holiness is the only way I'm surviving the pain right now. I'm quite sure I wouldn't survive any Tai Chi class. If and when I do - I'll comment. I'm so happy for those of you who have the presence of mind and the physical fortitude to engage in this.

    Rituxan can be slow to take effect for some people. I am one of those people. It is a good opportunity to practice patience. Loosing prednisone weight (40 pounds) was also an exercise in patience for me. My weight is close to normal now and I seven months without Rituxan. I was on a 4 month Rituxan schedule for quite some time. My doc says he is seeing quite a few people able to quit Rituxan after about three years. I hope I am one of those.

    Thanks Andrew! It is indeed taking time to work. I've now been placed on a 500 mg infusion every six months and hoping it can be scaled back after some time. Encouraging to believe you may be one of those people! Keep us posted.
