My mother had one round of CHOP-R, but it affected her heart so adversely the doctor won't administer it anymore as he is afraid she might not survive through it. (So, she will continue with CVP-R, minus the Vincristine.) As a result he says we are no longer treating to cure, but to relieve symptoms and get "another good year or two". I'm wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience, and whether we can expect any better than a couple more years following this course?
