Remission
Working / Worked
Complete remission after 2 treatments, however completing the remaining 4 treatments, 3 weeks apart. I still have my hair, however it has thinned out. Biggest side effects are fatigue and nausea. The nausea is well controlled with Zophran. Overall, not as bad as you might think. 5 days of high prednizone can be tough. Thank god for these drugs.
Working / Worked
Diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma 2/6/10. Did 6 R-CHOP treatments at Mayo Clinic Florida. Had every side effect in the book EXCEPT nausea. Zofran works! Worked full time through most of it. Complete clinical remission 7/26/10. Next step is stem cell harvest in October, and stem cell transplant in January 2011.
