Hi, I'm Jenny B E.

I was diagnosed with cutaneous b cell follicle lymphoma and it’s chronic I am also being treated with Rituximab . They gave me a light steroid with my first treatment. I broke out in hives . I have issues with steroids of any kind. They make suicidal and aggressive. 2nd infusion I didn’t receive steroids and iit went much easier thou the flu symptoms appeared but not as bad as I expected. To try to answer your question I know mine could come back at any time but it is Chronic
The Rituximab seems to be a good infusion. Sure beats Chemo and radiation I’ve had both on another cancer. Ask your oncologist your question or when you go for treatment ask the nurse that gives you your treatment they seem to know alot. We could tell you something that is wrong and scare you to death. Take care fight and stay away from crowds. You don’t need to catch anything remember our immune systems suck.
Jenny
