    Re: DLBCL treatment

    Way to go! Hopefully this will get confirmed with the Pet-scan results in a few weeks.

    Fingers crossed for you this week.

    How was the recovery in between Mtx #1 and #2?

    Had a fair bit of neuropathy and the mucositis and oedema persisted for a few days after discharge but I was mostly OK by the end of the break.

    I did get more tired, but I guess that's to be expected after 5 months of chemo.

    Yes, it would have been surprising if you'd felt otherwise! All in all, though, you seem to have fared pretty well.

    Now, do let us know when you have your PET scan results. Fingers crossed for you until then.

    Re: DLBCL treatment

    Home again and that's my planned treatment now concluded.

    Now we wait to see what the PET shows in a few weeks. My haemotologist is fairly confident of a complete response but if there are any small remaining areas of concern the plan is to nuke them with RT, so I already know the next step should one be necessary.

    For the next few weeks, though, I plan to spend a lot less time thinking about cancer than I have over the last 6 months.

    That sounds like the best plan to me!

    I wish you a speedy recovery from treatment, and hope for the best possible news from you in a few weeks!
