Finished treatment - Beverly

Celebration Associated with B-Cell Lymphoma. Posted on February 22, 2014 View this journey (8 Experiences)

After 2 1/2 years of chemo, I took my last Rituxin treatment yesterday. PET scan came back clean! Mixed emotions about ending chemo - joy because I'm still in remission and fear because my buddy Mr Chemo isn't going to be around any more to keep the cancer away. I've joined a Gilda's Club near me and I'm hoping that the support group will help me with the fear. I'm ok most of the time but then out of the blue I starting thinking what if it comes back. I know that if it does I will just have to deal with it with God's help so all in all it's a very good day.

    Beverly, what a warrior you are - 2 1/2 years of chemo! I am only scheduled for 6 treatments and after no. 4, feel pretty wiped out. I am very fortunate to be able to say that I just got a clean PET scan as well so I truly celebrate yours with you. I think you are being very proactive in joining the Gilda's Club and that that will be really helpful. I don't have any great wisdom to add but just wanted to acknowledge your struggle and your success. What an incredible accomplishment - kudos!
