Hi everyone. I am 56 and am now 9 months cancer free!. I was diagnosed with Large B-cell NH lymphoma in June 2015. The biopsy showed Burkitt-like behavior so my dx was Burkitt's. The treatment plan was Hyper-CVAD alternating with High dose Methotrexate plus cytarabine with Rituxamab also. This was for 8 treatments total alternating courses. It required me to have inpatient chemo every month so I was in the hospital from 10 - 14 days each month. I also had intrathecal chemo injections twice each month alternating methotrexate and cytarabine. I try not to think about how much chemotherapy I had. But it worked and now that is all behind me and I feel great now. Glad to be well and living a normal life again!
