I first discovered I had NHL in 2008 when I had blood tests done while I was traveling in the Ukraine. My symptoms were negligible for a few months but eventually I did 9 months of chemotherapy and had remission on retuximab. It left me healthy for 5 years. My second round of chemo wasn't successful. My body couldn't recover quickly enough to take a second dose of chemicals. I agreed to go on zydelig in May of 2015. I've been healthy ever since. It's a wonder drug for me although the cost to my med plan is non-sustainable if I continue for another year of so. Each month drains $5460 from my life time allowance!
