My father is 75,in Ohio, he was diagnosed in '02 with Non H. large B-cell.
because of his heart they were ony able o use 2 of the CHOP meds. He went n to remission after 6 months, it last 5 months, he then stared treatment again and after 5 months again it was under control again for only 5 months, no follow up was done because the oncologit was retiring and dropped the ball. It is now back and appears to be bad, there is also a radiolucency in his hip. New Dr. is going to start a 5 hour treatment of topotekan and taxal Monday then 3 one hour sessions.
I am having a hard time finding any testamonials about these meds, how they worked, side effect, etc. He starts in 2 days we are all very affraid and need info
