This is a very hard chemotherapy regimine, but it put me in a remission.

Six cycles of R-CHOP achieved only a partial remission that lasted for 5 months.
put it in partial remission for about 2 years

Eight rounds of R-CHOP and there is one persistent spot that has not responded. Awaiting biopsy results on that spot.

The 6 R-CHOP treatments were completed over a period of 3 months. Midway, we were told the cancer cells were 90% gone. We were overjoyed and thankful. But, after the completed treatments, a pet scan 2 months later showed cancer cells returned. The oncologist believes it may have turned into a more agressive type, so in 3 days, my dear love will undergo a biopsy. He looks and feels better at this time, however, so we once again are on that never-ending "roller-coaster."

This regimen shrunk my tumor 30% which my doctors and I decided was not enough to continue with this treatment.
As I have only just had the 1 cycle its hard to tell whether it will work differently the next time round. I felt very sick the 1st time. and had no energy what so ever...
