    I have Stage 3-4 cancer B cell Non Hodgkins lymphoma non aggressive borderline aggressive. I have had many treatments with Rituxib. My last scan showed 5-7 new growths and a few doubled in size. It also showed some heart disease, lung issues and calcium in my breast. Also in the last week I was in the ER for diverticulitis/colitis. I am concerned about the progression of the disease. Does this mean that I have added the aggressive to my disease.

  • So glad to find y'all.. I had my second bout this ...

    So glad to find y'all.. I had my second bout this year of diverticulitis in late August. Finished the meds and the pain is almost gone- still tender, but not pain. Had a CT scan last week with no active diverticula or blockage. However, I have zero appetite. I mean my stomach never even growls. I eat because I know I have to and I eat soft foods then. No soda or red meat and probiotic daily. I mean a half a grilled cheese will fill me up and make my esophagus area feel tight. My GI wants to do an endoscopy. I've lost 10 pounds and I didn't weigh 120 pounds before this began. I want to enjoy food again. Any help....

    I was diagnoised with Diverticulitis earlier this year and had my 2 round of Rituximab yesterday. It looks like Rituximab has flared the Diverticulitis up quite badly, as i've had chronic stomach pain ever since. Can anyone give amy advice or suggestions on what to do? I don't take any medication for the Diverticulitis. Thanks

    The first pain I get seems to be balls an tip of pensis. Its weird. I actually thought it was kidney stone or something. Feels like I need support or a strap. Cant get comfortable. Then the pain of gas or going #2 can be extreme.
