My name is Angelia. I'm 56 years old. I was recently diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma stage 3 on Jan. 24, 2014.
I also have a history of Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Sjogren's, Raynard's and Plumonary Fibrosis.
I started the R-CHOP regimine on March 3, 2014. I will be recieving this treatment every 21 days for 8 cycles and then continue on Ribtuxan every 8 weeks after.
I'm doing pretty well after the first chemo treatment. The only complaint I have so far is abdominal cramping and diarrhea with mild headaches.
My question is: What other symptoms should I expect over the next days and weeks with this type of treatment? I was told that I will lose all of my hair before the second treatment but, that really doesn't bother me so much since I know it will grow back.
Thank you in advance and I look forward to corresponding with others on this site.
