Hi, my name is Felicia. I was diagnosed at 24 yrs ago when I was 28 with Stage 1b DLBCL NHL. I had a football size encapsulated tumor in my chest cavity. I had 6 months of PROMACE CYTOBOM, (they don't even use that regiment anymore) & 4 wks of radiation. I was fine for 23 yrs. In Feb 2015, I found a softball size lump under my armpit after being sick with head & chest colds off & on since October 2014. I immediately called my oncologist who I saw yearly still. I was diagnosed with Stage 3 DLBCL, had 6 cycles R-CHOP, surgery to remove small spot that didn't resolve. 2 cycles RICE, then Autologous Stem cell transplant. Been in remission for almost a year. Also tried Clinical trial of Revlimid in February 2016, but had to stop after a month because of an allergic reaction.
