Has anyone needed IV IgG treatment after Rituxan treatment?
For a few years after stopping Rituxan, I was sick all the time – mostly severe respiratory infections. Every year I got flu in spite of flu vaccine, odd intestinal infections. Was sent to a pulmonologist for respiratory issues who did bunches of immunological tests. Found Rituxan completely wiped out B cells. I still have no B cells. As a result do not make immunoglobulins. Am low on IgG and IgM. Now have to get IV IgG every four weeks for rest of life to stay healthy. Works like a charm but was never warned this was a risk. Anyone else with similar experience? Have never seen this in any RA forum
