Im mike (34 years old) and have been battling diffuse large b cell lymphoma for about 8 months. Did four rounds of R EPOCH and 5 rounds of Hyper C VAD. Great outcome, 98.5% of the cancer is gone. One lymphnode is still showing signs of cancer. After speaking to my doctors we have agreed to a Auto Stem Cell transplant. I have become very familiar with the actul process of the procdure and that doesnt seem to really bother me to much.
I am more interested in hearing about the recovery experiences and time frame afterwards from others who have experienced this type of procedure. Would welcome any and all feedback from others. Im very optimistic but would like to hear some personal stories and not statistics from doctors who sound like they are reading out of a book.
