My lymphoma shrunk 50-60 after after 4th treatment, Well I guess it's good news that ABVD is working as expected. Yesterday was my 6th treatment. I remember my first one once I said (1 down and 11 Togo :). My oncologist told me I am going to have a CT scan after the 8th one but not a PET scan (don't you think that PET scan is more efficient that CT scan). and he said if everything cleared up we may stop the treatment at 8 (4th cycle). I really love to do that, but I have concern about relapse if I do not finish all 6 cycles (is not that I love to go all the way to 6 cycles). And keep in mind that my Oncologist still refuses to use Retuxan along with the ABVD. Any suggestion or insight on this matter will greatly appreciate it.
DX : NLPHL - IIIA on February.
