I have a family member who was diagnosed with Primary Mediastinal Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma. He completed his first two treatments of R-EPOCH, and had a PET scan right before the 3rd treatment. The mass has shrunk significantly, but it was not completely dead, as we had hoped. There was still a small amount of "glow" (the number they gave us was "4") on the PET scan. I am wondering if anyone else had this same result and what the suggested treatment was after given these results.
Thank you for your expertise!
