I HAVE BEEN READING ALL THE DIFFERENT MESSAGES WITH THE NHL GROUP. IT'S NICE TO HEAR OTHERS WITH NHL RESULTS . I HAVE BEEN IN REMISSION SINCE NOV 2003. WONDERING HOW LONG OTHERS HAVE BEEN IN REMISSION. I HAVE NHL LOW GRADE / STAGE 1 / SMALL FOLLICULE / CLEAVED. I WAS TREATED 8 TIMES WITH CHEMO / RITUXIN CHOP . HOW LONG DOES REMISSION LAST??? IF ANYONE HAS HAD CHOP THERAPY AND IN REMISSION, PLEASE LET US KNOW HOW LONG BEFORE RELAPSE. THANK YOU SO MUCH, JOHN

Dear John, I was diagnosed in 1996 with diffuse large b cell and I had 8 rounds of CHOP and I have been in remission ever since! Yet, it's with me everyday...you know? One day at a time
