    Decision Point (When to start treatment.): Diagnosed August 2017. Likely I had MCL for a couple of years prior. First treatment February 15, 2019. B/R for 4-6 months. If I get a remission, likely SCT next.

    Oh No (Just Diagnosed): i was diagnosed in August 2017 via a routine colonoscopy. Only symptoms have been occasional blood in the stool and having more frequent bowel movements. PET Scan and bone marrow biopsy indicate it's only in GI track. Second PET Scan in February 2018 show it hasn't spread. Lymph nodes normal. Have seen 4 oncologists. Have been labled Stage 2 and Stage 4 from different doctors. Still doing watch and wait until indicators show it's spreading or until symptoms increase. Been told it may be an indolent case - rare. Seems like only options will be a chemo treatment and probable stem-cell transplant. Not looking forward to either based upon what I've been reading about everyone's experiences. Was hoping CAR-T would be available as a first-line treatment, but it seems that's a ways off yet, and it looks like it has some substantial side effects, too. Hard to determine which first line treatment to go with.
