It has been 2 1/2 years since my R-Chop began and then 2 years of Rituxan treatments. Yesterday was my last treatment at the Siteman Cancer Center in St. Louis. It is a wonderful place. Cheers went up when I rang the bell marking the end. Now lab tests and Dr. visit every three months and yearly CT scans. I am in remission and hopes it will last for years. But I know there is no cure, it is just a battle to keep the follicular lymphoma at bay. The doctors are very pleased with my progress and feel I can add 2 years to my remission above the normal. But normal is different for each person. I feel great. Joined the YMCA so I can imporve my 5K time from last October.
