    MD Anderson Visit

    My husband Rick and I will be going to MD Anderson for a consultation visit in early April. He has Diffuse Large B cell Lymphoma- Richter transformation from CLL/SLL. R-CHOP, RICE and RGemOx have not worked. We will be meeting with Dr. Luis Fayad.

    Would like any input on visiting MD Anderson, anyone with similar diagnosis, Dr. Fayad and clinical trials ? Thanks very much.

      I am stopping by to send you and your DH Rick, hugs, prayers and healing vibes. Do not know about Dr Fayad, but I know the MD Anderson is one of the top ranked cancer centers in the country. Just did a quick google of Dr F - he was rated one of the the Top Docs by USNews

      I know how difficult this most be for all of you. I find the waiting stage the worst. Your life is on hold and you just want to know what's happening so you can start moving forward.

      Best of luck with your visit and putting together a treatment plan. Please keep us update

      I go to MD Anderson and it is the best! I would not want to be anywhere else! Yes, it is huge and at first may seem intimidating, but everyone there is friendly and helpful.

      I spent six months in treatment at MD Anderson on and off. Be prepared. My first consultation was several days of testing and I was immediately admitted for chemo. We were there for almost three weeks the first visit so be prepared to stay and take clothing. The hospital is the only place to go. I am now in remission and will go back there if I have any recurrences. They are the best. The hospital is huge but easy to navigate . Good luck. The doctors and nurses are exceptional at Anderson.

      MD Anderson is one of the premiere centers in the nation, if not the world. Dr. Fayad does not work in a vacuum, having and using the resources of each and every other specialist at the center. Have no fear, and research clinical trials at http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/
