FNHL Relapse after Rituxan.
just wondering who among you may have relapsed after Rituxan monotherapy followed by Rituxan maintenance. Maybe GG? Would like to know what follow on therapy you selected and why. Would especially like to talk to someone who may have chosen to repeat the R only therapy and how that worked for you.
How far into chemo did your doctors mention doing a stem cell transplant?
Hey, All! I'm writing because I have a question: My dad had Stage 4 Splenal Marginal Zone Lymphoma, a low grade form of NHL. This spring, his low-grade lymphoma transformed into a high-grade lymphoma. Right now, he is under-going RCHOP and it appears to be working like a charm. Here's my question: For those of you who have…
Has anyone one had refractory DLBCL?
I was diagnosed with DLBCL in April. Just a few days before my last scheduled treatment of R-CHOP, I felt a lump in my abdomen. I got the treatment and my PET was moved up to this past Friday. I had started with one larger tumor and 2 smaller ones. The smaller ones appear to be gone, but the larger one (which had shrunk by…
Mediastinoscopy or wait and re-image? - Lymphoma or ?
New member here that is interested in any guidance or advice from folks that have been down this road before. Here goes: I'm a healthy male, non-smoker in my mid to late 40s who has not yet been diagnosed (but not for lack of trying). I'm essentially 'symptom free' now but what brought me in was an acute cough and…
I start my R-CHOP treatment for NHLPL tomorrow. My anxiety is through the roof. Can anyone relate from their experiences how R-CHOP affects you during and immediately after the first treatment? My doctor told me what to expect, but I would find information from people that have actually endured it more helpful.
Chemo not working - terminal- NHL
my father's oncologout told us that the tumor has not responded to 4 treatments of R-CHOP. He was very sick with the treatments and now they say he is terminal - 6 months. i thought there might be other options like radiation or somethinG. Six months ago he was play hockey. Maybe the tumor is to big for radiation. We're…
Hey everyone. I don't know what kind of help I can get from here since I'm not getting very much help from my doctor. But I was just recently diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma Stage II in June of this year. One of the first things my oncologist told me was that I would be needing to do chemo every other week (ABVD) starting…
Remorse, can anyone else relate
Hey Guys Sorry I havent posted in a long time. I have been so busy traveling with work and such. All is good on the home front im 3 years in remission post Auto Stem Cell Transplant. Life is normal again, and for me normal is GREAT! Tonight I have learned that a dear friend of mine who guided me during my chemo treatment…
RICE treatment onto Stem Cell Transplant
Met with my oncologist today and the final word on my FNHL is that although the tumor had shrunk a lot after the first 4 R-CHOP treatments, there wasn't much shrinkage after the last two. So my options are to do Rituxan to try and keep the cancer held back. Radioimmunotherapy which I had not read up on at all. RICE…
Looking for treatment insight
I am a 44 year old male and have been diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. Nodular Lymphcite Predominant Hodkins Lymphoma to be precise. In Feb 2014 I had an ultrasound for a possible appeniciitis that turned out to be a pulled muscle. There was a small abnormaity in my abdomen noted on the results. My doctor assured me it…
