Hi there

I was recently diagnosed with this rare lymphoma. Since there isn´t much information about greyzone lymphomas on the web, I figured I might aswell try here instead Wink. I´m currenty being treated with DA-EPOCH R 

Has anyone got this? Thanks

I would say I've never heard of that one but prior to my own lymphoma, I had never heard of any of them. When my doctor said I had lymphoma, I said, "what's that"? That is how under educated I was. Some more information about you and your case would help us. And I sure hope someone here has some insight for you.

Nice to hear from you, there aren't many of us out there.  


How's your treatment going? I'm at my 6th cycle (hopefully the last) and doing well!

I hope this message finds you well.  I am a 10 year survivor of IV B Gray-Zone Lymphoma.  I did 8 rounds of EPOCH-R and was one of the original receptients of this chemo.  If you like to talk about some of the side effects I would glad to lend you my ear.  I hope you are well.

Hi, I have never heard the term grey zone but I am a survivor of primary mediastinal lymphoma (diffuse large b cell). Last month was my ten year anniversary from finishing treatment. I had 8 rounds of CHOP+R and a month of radiation treatment, I was 28 at time of diagnosis. My tumour was large and I ended up having three biopsies with an eventual open chest surgery to get diagnosis/remove some of the tumour surgically, though it was near my heart, lungs, blocking superior vena cava, all that fun stuff so surgeon couldn't get at it very well). So anyway it can be beat :-) I was told at the time that this lymphoma makes up 1% of all lymphomas - not sure how accurate that still is. Anyway best of luck with your treatment, I know it's not easy but if I can do it anyone can :). Take care.
