    <span style='font-family: Century Gothic'>G'morning,

    Earlier this month I had posted about needing more treatment for non hodgkins lymphoma.

    I started Rituxan yesterday, yep - Friday the 13th. It is a ....s....l....o....w.... drip, goes in like chemo but is actually termed immunotherapy.

    The treatment is a little fatiguing, with maybe a few annoying side effects.

    At this point, I would say this is going to be a two thumbs up experience :smile: with a lot of good living to look forward to</span>

    Chris, I hope you won't need many treatments to nail that disease to the ground once and for all. I'm sending good thoughts and lots of hugs.

    Chris, I'm hoping the treatment will be effective and you won't get sick from any side effects.
