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.

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.
I tolerated it well but have some neuropathy on the balls of my feet. I was tired and my appetite was not great because my taste buds were off.
I am going to do my fifth cycle after tomorrow :
overall, the treatment is not that bad. the tumor become smaller by 50% after two cycles(now it is 6cm).
side effects: my hair fall but this is not big issue for me.
some tingling sensation in my feet(peripheral neuropathy)
the worst thing is the Prednisolone, it makes me feel very nauseated and sick during the first five days.
major problem for me is the price of the Rituxan because i pay out of my is not fair to pay 4000$ for it
Just completed 6 cycle R-CHOP with complete response effective March 17, 2010

I had six rounds of this strong stuff. It worked it's magic, and I went into remission after the 4th round. The side effects are weakness, nausea, and just plain not feeling like yourself at all, but it's amazing how it worked. I thank God for it.
