After being diagnosed in Jan 2013 went through immediate FCR which lasted eight months. This led to a three year remission after which the disease was again detected. Disease progression has been gradual but my Oncologist says further treatment with Retuxin/Bendamustine is very likely soon (he has been saying this for some six months but disease progression has been very slow)
What does this secondary treatment hold for me and is there likelihood of another remission or are these secondary treatments playing for time. I am a healthy 71 year old still playing active golf and feel absolutely fine. I live in South Africa where many of the modern drugs are not available or beyond the financial reach of most.
