I joined a few days ago. My mom (65 yrs old) was diagnosed with NHL 3A for now stage 2 (the bone marrow flowcytomotry showed negative, but they will do an immunocytochemistry to make sure it is not there for sure, why didn't they do that in the first place? go figure! to torture us, I guess) They say it's a bit in the intermediate area rather than follicular/indolent since the ki67 is 90% so that 90% of the cells are dividing. Although there were no large B-cells, the local onc wants to treat it aggressively with R-CHOP (3 or 4 cycles). The UCLA onc is against that and wants to do the relatively newer drug Bendamustine-Rituxen (4-6 cycles). They don't seem to agree, both are pretty adamant and feel strongly. We've spoken to both and relayed the other's message. We are caught in the middle! It's hard to make a decision on your own and then later possibly regret it. PLEASE let me know if you have any advice/experience in this matter. What should we do? What would you do??? Thanks!
Prayers and support sent everyone's way!
