I wrote on here last October over my mum who has Large Diffuse B cell non hodgkins lymphoma. She started with the RCHOP treatment then radiotherapy. On a scan after that last summer, it showed that the area where it was originally had gone but another part has appeared active. We had all the meetings with Dr Radford etc and they said the next step would be to have 2 cycles of a stronger type of chemo R GDP and then another pet scan to see if it has shrunk enough to go and have a stem cell transplant. She has now had this and we got the results yesterday of the pet scan…the R GDP hasn’t worked and it is showing as more active (hotter).
They have now said she is to have 20 sessions of radiotherapy followed by either a autologous or a allogeneic stem cell transplant, a decision which will be made at the end of the month because they have said there is a lot to think about, as a allogeneic sct has a lot higher risks.
Has anyone else at this stage or had a allogeneic stem cell transplant?
The chances of her cure are getting slimmer and slimmer and I am really starting to panic! I can’t lose my mum!
