Great news, had a CT last week and after six R-CVP treatments I am in CR! I am so thankful and can hardly believe it. However, I will have to do some further treatments to try and prolong remission. I had pretty much decided to do the Zevalin, when my doctor threw me a curve and said there was a new study published a couple of weeks ago on Rituxin Maintenance. There is now evidence that the PFS is comparable to that of Zevalin (at least I believe that's what I heard, need to clarify with him). He is okay with either choice, now I have to make a decision (oh..so hard). The RM is two years plus nine months recovery time, or Zevalin one week plus nine months recovery. Praying for guidance and hope some wisdom comes my way pretty soon as I only have another week to decide.
Meanwhile, I pray for all of us, for remission and PFS for many years to come. Thanks for being here. It helps a lot.
