I was diagnosed with Wegners early April. I have just completed my 2nd Rituxin infusion on Dec 5th. I was previously on methotrexate 20 mg and prednisone 15 mg but my doc felt i was only being partially treated due to more nodules appearing in my lungs. I was told by the doc that rituxin takes 3 mths to kick in where upu actually feel a difference but that it should be working on the inflammation in my lungs by now. When i went to do followup bloodwork on Dec 18th my c reactive protein was 9.1 the highest its ever been i was started on meds. My doc told me not to worry that tjis is a minimal increase in CRA and does not think it is the result of vasculitis. I just thought that if the rituxin has started to work on the inflammation as per my doc my CRA should be lower...just worried the rituxin is not working.
