    Decision Point

    After 4 rounds of R-CHOP chemo, my husband is still deciding if he wants to finish. He was supposed to do 6 rounds but only did 4 due to the horrible side effects he had with round 4. He also isnt happy with his oncologist and we are looking for a possible change. He feels his oncologist wasnt listening to him when he was expressing his concerns regarding the really bad side effects he was having. The Dr. just appeared to blow him off telling him they were typical side effects of chemo and then telling my husband that he didnt understand why he was having such a hard time when he gives R-CHOP to patients over 70 and they do just fine with it. Very frustrating.
