The Drs there will work with you local Drs on the treatment. My mother will be receiving her treatment at UAB but it will be supervised and evaluated by MD Anderson. Our whole family is in shock about this. My mom had no symptoms but a swollen gland in her neck. We are waiting to see if it is in her bone marrow and on the PET scan results. How can I help her through this?
Looking through all the posts and had to ask how your mom is doing, and what treatment has she gone through? Did she have a Stem Cell Transplant.
If you are willing, can you update us on her experience?
Thanks and God Bless,
Kathy in Va. (My dx was in 1/06, had 6 R-CHOP, Stem Cell Transplant and now doing 4 maintenance treatments every 6 months. 18 months post transplant.
