  • IC , Lymphoma and Rituximab (iv)

    I was diagnosed with Lymphoma in my breast. The lumps are small and they will be radiated.
    My hematologist wants me to take Rituximab (iv) as a precaution. I am worried about the
    side effects of this medication and was wondering if anyone on this IC forum ever had Rituximab and how bad were the side effects
    how did it affect the bladder, I have a very painful bladder and this stressed me out. What was done to minimize those side effects?

    In general, this is a subject that I want to learn more about so I will be thankful for anything you want to share with me, either here or in a private message.

    I responded to your private message, but wanted to let people know that one of my cancer treatment drugs was Rituximab and it didn't cause a bladder problem for me. If anyone has questions about this medication, I will try to answer.
