I had/have large B cell NHL, found when it was a large mass in my lung. I had 6 treatments of R-CHOP last fall. Now, I am simply stable. The last PET scan 4 months ago still showed some activity, but no growth. The doctor has never used the word remission, and every time I walk into his office and report that I am feeling GREAT w/ more energy than I've had in years, he acts puzzled. I think he is expecting full blown lymphoma to take off again. And it hasn't. I'm just curious if anyone else with large B cell NHL, an aggressive lymphoma, experienced this. I realize that with the indolent lymphomas, a simply stable condition is common. But I didn't think that was possible with the aggressive types. Thoughts, anyone?
