could you tell me about follicular lymphoma please

doctor1 MD

I have follicular lymphoma and was wondering if taking supplements would be helpful. I am a 60 year old female. I am currently taking maintenance dosage of Rituxan total of 8 treatments, on my 6th treatment next. My cancer is in remission at this time. I also have gained a lot of belly fat since I started the Rituxan. I have had no other type of cancer treatments. My appetite is good, but I do exercise and I eat more plant based foods. Do not understand weight gain other than treatments ( 20lbs) gained since treatments. thank you
