Hello Hilde and Edwin and All on the board,
It was good hearing from you Hilde(private message) and Edwin I am glad to see you are still here! How are you Edwin? Have you began treatment yet? I seem to recall reading a while back that you had began a treatment and if so I hope it is working for you. Hilde, I would like to remind you that my treatment with the Zevalin was as a first line defense (treatment) for my fnhl. I had not ever received any other type of treatment such as cocktail chemo's or radiation upon discovery of my "C". I do however still undergo rituxin maintenance therapy every two months to assure that I stay cancer free. I will be N.E.D.(No Evidence of Disease) 2 years as of the 26th of this month, praise God! I do at times wish that the rituxin was not necessary but the onc doc says "no can do". Yet! As I mentioned, I am doing great as always, thank God, and pray that all of you can claim the same. Over the last couple of years I have also continued to change my diet to improve the way my body acts and reacts too. I began having problems with wheezing while I was lying down to sleep and was forcing myself to cough or sitting up to get some relief but it would not make it go away. My wife then somehow got the idea to try eliminating "wheat gluten" from our diets and in no time at all the wheezing stopped. So did the "Acid reflux"! If I find some way to ease or eliminate the pain that comes and goes in my neck and shoulders other than chiropractic proceedures (only temporary relief) I will share it with you all too.
My best wishes and prayers for you all!
Stay Strong and Positive†
