I'm the new kid in the building but, I'm also 5 years post-chemo (r-hyper CVAD) and 5 years post-autologeous (SP?) stem cell transplant on account-a MCL. The chemo caused leakage that created peritonitis that "whacked" my kidneys. Then, there's that menigioma in my cavernous sinus but, that's a different place. Now, my lymphoma has become recurrent.
So, the nice lady said Bendamustine and Rituximab. Anyone out there who can clue me as to how great this is going to feel? That first batch of stuff was pretty tough and it has turned me into quite the creepy old fart but, the MCL wasn't alone. This time it is. And, we think this is a good plan. Question... Anyone been down this particular treatment trail?
