Hi everyone. I'm new to this so please bear with me. My husband has been diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma Diffuse Large B cell with a bulky mass in his abdomen stage IV. After his 4th round of R-CHOP chemo he developed tingling and numbness on the soles of his feet. When we went to hospital for his 5th chemo and told the Doctor his symptoms he decided not to give the Vincristine part of the chemo as this is what causes the numbness. Now I am worried that the chemo won't work as well in getting all of the cancer. Doctor said it is important to get at least 3 doses of the full R-CHOP but I think he may have said that so we don't worry. Has anyone had a similar experience.
