Within 48 hours of receiving Rituximab infusion, I caught a viral illness. My throat is sore, stuffy nose, body aches and is exhausted, and I have slight chills. My children both developed high fevers (102+) from this illness. What should I do?
Call you doctor and follow the usual remedies for a viral upper respiratory tract illness, particularly using tylenol or ibuprofen to keep down your temperature. You should get better soon.
