    Would like to hear experiences from those who have had R-Chop. Also from those who have undergone mini-allo SCT. How did you choose your SCT Center?

      Hey there! I'm currently undergoing R-CHOP, and having a few troubles. I have infusion reactions to the Rituxan, but none of the CHOP part. The infusions are a bit on the long side and nearly drive me nuts!

      I tend to have nausea quite often following infusions-- about 2 weeks or more. Though, as you look around here, you will notice most others aren't weaklings like myself. It's tough therapy, but definitely doable. I just think there is something in the cocktail that disagrees with my body-- I don't know what it is because I started too many medications at once to pick it out. The good news is the doctor is always quick to offer suggestions/extra medications to cover up the ills.

      As for SCT, I am still in initial treatment.. I have researched it, but not experienced it. There are many warriors here with experience, and I'm sure one will chime in quickly :) Best of luck to you and RIck :)
