I am looking for someone else that has been on the clinical trial using Epoch-R. I was diagnosed with diffuse large cell lymphoma April 2008. I had 6 rounds of chemo at Siteman Center in St. Louis and am now in remission. I had trouble with my blood counts during treatment and had to have 15 units of blood. I am now having scans every 3 months and doing okay. I do have neuropathy in my feet. Has anyone else used Epoch? Thanks, BHB

    EPOCH-R Treatment
    I was treated with EPOCH-R in 2003 for Stage IIA Nodular Scelrosing Hodgkin's Lymphoma showing a CD20+ Marker. The treatment was a pain, that is for sure, but within 6 months or so of the completion of the treatment, all the neuropathy was gone, and I haven't had any side effects since, knock on wood! Blood counts were also an issue for me because of the highly toxic drugs used (that Cytoxin was the worse!) However, again everything seems to be fine!
