What were your results? did your insurance pay? Did it stop your progression?

Yes I guess I maybe one of only a handful that have had Rituxan. So far it has stopped progression. I went to my nuero a week or so ago and he said that I was in full remission. As far as my insurance, they only paid for the Dr.'s or nurses giving the drug , but not the drug itself.
Before I started the drug ( which I only did 4 weeks of) I was taking a monthly dose of solumedrol which kinda kept things at bay. Now for the most part I feel fine. Would like to hear from any others that have done this. My Dr. should post something, LOL as if. He says that they have seen the best results for rrms with this drug. He is in the Texas Medical Center in Houston. We'll see.....
BTW I think my last infusion was sometime around Febuary.
