I was diagnosed with NHL stage II B cell follicular when I was 45. I did 6 rounds of R-CHOP and I believe I went into remission almost immediately. The very fist treatment of Rituxan I had no pain and the chemo was not as bad as I thought but I don't want to do it again ! My doctor did not give me maintanence Rituxan. Since my cancer is follicular I am not considered cured (I didn't find this out until last year) I am having trouble enjoying life because I am scared that the cancer will return. Everywhere I turn someone is fighting cancer, my son in law died of a rare cancer last year and it was awful. I just am looking for some emotional support. I would appreciate your help. Thanks.
