    I know very little about mantle cell. What type of chemo are we talking about? If it is r-chop or r-cvp I think I can help you. There are some people here that are dealing with mantle cell. Glad you came to this site. We are all here to help one another and give support. I see some people are getting abvd, but I am not too familiar with that. Let us know where you are with diagnosis and any pre-treatment and it will be easier for us to guide you. You will see there are just caring and concerned people on this site. Just keep in mind cancer is not the way it was several years ago. They have come a long way in recent years. I am sure you have been to the many websites, but keep in mind a lot of them are outdated. We are all different and we react differently to treatments. Get back to us. John

    Like Cobra I know only a little bit about Mantle cell as it is one of the rarer forms of Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I know that it is considered an indolent sort but acts more aggressively. I also know that many of the same Chemo treatments are used with this as are used with the others and this we can help with. I am also sure there are others here who have this diagnosis. Would you be comfortable sharing your story? Great,kind,supportive and smart people are here and willing to offer their support. Hope to hear from you. Mary
