      I started out with RCHOP. I went through 6 rounds and was going to do radiation to my left hip where a little remained. But it started growing back before I could get the radiation and so I had to go through 3 rounds of RICE. Now I'm getting ready to do a bone marrow transplant in a couple days. But I do hear that RCHOP normally works really well for DLBC lymphoma.

      I am currently undergoing R-CHOP at 21 day intervals and I'm on my fifth cycle right now.

      I had six rounds of R-CHOP which I finished in December of last year. Side effects were minimal, and I had a PET scan half way through and a CT scan afterwards both of which showed cancer free.

      I had 8 treatments of the RCHOP. I had a PET at the beginning to show how much was there and another PET after the 4th to show it was "melting like butter" as the nurses like to say. At the end and every six month I had a CT scan for 3 years. I am cancer free for 3 years. Now I have a CT annually (I think til I reach 5 Years). So far so good.

      My treatment was (4) rounds of RCHOP + (25) Involved Field Radiation Treatments. All treatment ended in May 2012. I have had two 3-month check-ups with no evidence of disease. The doctor scheduled check-ups every 3-months for the next 2 years. I am feeling great and back to 100% normal activities.
