Ive been reading some of the post regarding Lupus.
Im 34 yrs old and am an australian aboriginal who was diagnosed with lupus in 1994 and have had anything and everything that can be associated with lupus.
From molar rashes, joints, rhuematoid arthiritis, fatigue, endocarditis, pendicitis, liver issues, physcosis, pancreatitis, anemia, nephritis, avascular necrosis resulting in bilateal hip replacements, hair loss, epelipsy any many more....
I have been on varios medications over the past 18yrs and only in the past 5yrs have been diagnosed with lupus nephritis class V then a repeat biopsy this month confirmed i have both lupus nephritis 4a and 5. I have been on celcept for the past 5yrs and now i am about
to line up to have iv cyclophosamaide and rituximub!!! I usually dive into treatment without hesitation but am really worried about
the rituximub as its been 18yrs and now that im 34yrs old i dont know if my body will be able to handle anymore
I have had cyclophismaide in the past and tollerated it after reading the warnings of rituximub im scared... Anyone out there has any information or have used rituximab? Pls share your experience
