Customer Question
My husband has...

My husband has CLL and just finished his 6th infusion of Rituxin. Today he has visible blood in his urine. Since it is Christmas Eve, should I call his primary or hematologist or wait until Tuesday.

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

He is tired all the time. He also has Alzheimer's. He just had a PET scan and it was improved from is last one. The PET showed a stone (stone non-blocking) in his kidney that had not changed from prior PET and CT scans.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

He said he is having some pains in his lower back. He is also on Coumadin for a DVT in 2015. Current dosage is 7mg for 4 nights a week and 8 mg 3 nights a week.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
