I will have R Epoch treatment #6 next week but my Dr. wants me to continue for one, maybe 2 more sessions. My last PET scan showed "no activity" in the lymphoma. Has anyone else had more than 6 treatments? I am not getting the cytoxin because it has caused infiltrates in my lungs and that is why the Dr. feels I need the extra two sessions. The first week after treatment I am very tired and on the 12th day I am in a lot of pain while the Nulasta kicks in my white count. The second week about the treatment, I feel good enough to get some work done around the house. Then it starts all over again. I was so looking forward to this being my last session, but if two more will give me several years without the cancer, I'll do it.
