How did you get on with the Brentuximab?
I have just finished 5 treatments of Brentuximab to try and get me in remission for an Allograft SCT. I have Classic Hodgkins. I had a PET scan after 3 Brentuximab treatments which showed I had responded well but still had a hot spot in my chest. I had 2 further treatments but the latest PET scan shows no change from the previous scan so the Drs have now put me forward for the SCT asap, hopefully in the next 4 weeks. I’m now quite nervous about it as I am still PET positive which I didn’t really consider as an option before the start of the Brentuximab treatments.
Brentuximab has been the easiest chemo I’ve had so far, I’ve had a rash on my arms and feel quite tired with it for the first week after treatment but fine apart from that, I have even been away on holiday! Having had an autograft SCT already I have a good idea what I’m in for with the allo so trying to make the most of the next few weeks.
I hope you have had a positive experience with it.
