I had a patient tell me that getting lymphoma cured her fibro and that the fibro was probably just lymphoma all along.

It took a while to convince her that it was probably the 12 kilos of prednisone and a big whack of cytoxan (and maybe a shot of Rituximab...that seems to be good for what ails you) that "cured" her "fibro."

Copied from a doctors forum I think it's circa 2005 the bit about Rituximab interested me.

Rituximab is very in vogue at the moment, ME CFS trial, was given to 30 people after a cancer patient taking Rituximab was cured of ME.

Hi Mods,
I've just posted the above reply to a post made by Melbi which was on this thread (well at least I thought it was!).
Melbi's post doesn't appear to be here anymore? Which makes my reply a bit pointless.
Please delete my reply if possible.
I found Melbi's comments and opinions offensive and inflamatory and responded accordingly. I don't think I've ever felt the need to be so forthright with anyone before on an internet forum. :-x

Thanks for dealing with this,

G.
