My brother started treatment for IVa NLPHL in December of 2011 He received 6 cycles of r-abvd. Treatment ended in late June, results of pet-scan at that time showed slow growth in the right axillary still. Doctors recommended wait and watch until September, so here we are. Went to the Doctor for yet another pet-scan and the right axillary still shows slow growth, they are now recommending wait and watch again until December. The doctors did not seem surprised that he had not reached remission after his first round of treatments. It is so difficult to get information about this disease, I am hoping to compare notes with other patients and see how they progressed after their first round of treatment.
Thanks for the help everyone!
