I was recently diagnosed with a spinal growth from T3 to T5. I have gone through a regimen of eight weeks of Retuxin, and it seems to have eliminated all of the growth. However, I continue to have what I call a "Belly Band", which is a girdle type sensation that is sometimes pressure and sometimes vacuum. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this sensation and if it has been diagnosed? This has been going on now for approximately five months.

  • Hi thereI'm wondering if after your Rituxan treatment you were sent for a radiation oncology opinion?I'm not saying that you need radiation but I think you may benefit from an opinion from an experienced radiation oncologist to make sure you do not need further local therapy.Let me knowpberonhttp://breastcancertx.blogspot.com/
