blog entries about health issues

Monday, December 31, 2012

It probably seems like my health is what I blog about here; that's for sure true. Sharing with others is a good form of support. Every once in awhile I even hear from someone who is in a similar place.

I'm at it again - treatment for the non hodgkins lymphoma. Fortunately it remains slow growing. It's been only several months since I last did this, which means the former type of treatment is not going to do it this time; I will need something a little stronger than just rituxan - which was so easy for me.

I'll be starting bendamustine plus rituxan in a couple of weeks .. .. .. no hair loss with that, which is a relief. It sounds like I may experience some big fatigue and rolling tummy.

On the VERY plus side, the doc feels pretty certain this round will knock it back:) This will be the 7th time I have been treated since 1995.
