Re: can you go through RCHOP with no support?
Hi bella, my dad was recently diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma, wich is very agressive, so he has been on the RCHOP treatment. You have to understand, he is 72 and was pretty advanced when diagnosed, so don't know if your brother has more strength to start with. He takes a pill to protect his liver, and has not had any vomitting yet, but did have a reaction to the Retuxin i believe it is called after two treatments and now i think they have stopped that one. Overall, i would say your brother may need to have someone with him at first to see how he handles it. He may do just fine. Will he have to get a marrow building shot the day after RCHOP? That can be painfull in their long bones. It gets my dad down more than the chemo i think. Anyhow, much love to you and your brother, and i will pray for speedy recovery!!
