My 80 year old mother has recently been diagnosed with Diffused Type B Large Cell lymphoma. Two different doctors have reviewed her case with two very different opinions. One feels she is too weak for chemo and believes Rituxan will be sufficient to control the disease. The other agrees she is weak but does not believe Rituxan will be effective, he recommends an older form of Chemo which she may handle better. What to do?
