If you remember my current onconlogist was thinking of moving me to R-ICE w/ SCT since my cancer did not react after the second R-CHOP treatment. More details in my other post. Anyway, he spoke with the folks at Roswell Park Cancer Institute (luckily on 10 miles from me). I met with a one of their doctors this morning--one that specializes in what I'm going through. He actually recommended use DHAP vs. R-ICE. He feels it is a tad stronger and a better chemical fit.
I know a few of you asked me to tell you what happened at Roswell...so there it is.
We're going to stick with Roswell. If this doesn't work, I got the impression there are a couple other options they may be able to offer me. So this week is more test: bone marrow, biopsy, etc.--actually I'm happy about this because most of the research I've read recommends retesting when something like this happens.
So, while this isn't the greatest news...I have a great doctor team...friends and family. I just know I'm going to kick this thing.
