I was diagnosed with mantle cell lymphoma in October, 2004. Went through 8 biweekly RCHOP. Completed them in March, 2006. CR! Am on bi-monthly Retuxan maint treatment and 16 week CT Scans. Still CR, but last CT suddenly showed a spot of emphysema. Think it is progressing quickly and will see GP soon for further investigation. I don't smoke and am convinced it is a side effect of the Retuxan. Any comments?
