    New chemo

    Oh No

    Cancer was minimal and at stage 1 but this small portion left had become resistant and we needed to do a new type of chemo in lieu of radiation to the site.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    2 rounds of RICE and if it worked it would be a precursor to a bone marrow transplant.

    Implant chemotherapy port

    Procedure or Surgery

    Central line catheter placed on the opposite side of the chemo port to harvest my bone marrow and to give the chemo during the transplant. Received one more round of RICE during this hospital visit to hold off the lymphoma until the transplant.

    Auto Bone Marrow Transplant

    Procedure or Surgery

    Just home from the hospital a week ago. Still tired and have no energy. But doc says my blood levels are coming up nicely. Don't have a scan to see how/if it worked for another 45 days. Ugh.
