I've been reading posts since I was diagnosed 10/18/2011 with Mantle Cell Lymphoma and even though this is my first post I've met a lot of you online reading your posts. I started with all the tests. CT scan, Pet scan, bone marrow biospy ( I never want one again ) and lymph node surgery. I don't have cancer in my bones or any organs - just in all over in my lymph nodes. Just finished R-Chop number 4 treatment today. Last week I had a CT scan and showed it is greatly improved. My doc also wants me to have a stem cell transplant next. After my first treatment I got a bad case of shingles on my butt and nearby areas and needed a catheter for one week - just terribly. But things have been better lately during treatment. Just wanted to say hi to everybody and I hope in the end this is all worth it.
