hi my name is becky and i have had lupus for 21 years.  i worked in pharmacy for 15 of those years and then the wolf became big and bad!!
i took rituxamab last year and now i have primary immuno defiency disease.  i will be getting my first infusion of IVIG tomorrow.  this should help the problem, but like anything else it comes with a $.  each infusion is $13.000 dollars.nono  UHC is thankfully paying for it.
