I have been looking over the Primary CNS Lymphoma discussion board from the shadows for several months as my dad has been diagnosed with CNS lymphoma. He has had 3 treatments with DepoCyt via his Ommaya Reservior. These treatments lead to a headache the first day following treatment, then nausea & vomiting the second day following treatment. After that, he stays fatigued, with a lack of appetite & he's not as sharp as usual nor is his sense of humor at it's usual level. He was treated with intraveneous Rituxan ten years ago for lymphomia with no side effects and went 10 years before this relapse. I just wanted to see, if anyone had an opinion as to which treatment had better results for you. Are the side effects worth the treatment he is currently on or should he go back to what worked before?
