Today is day 2 of the BFM C protocol involving high dose cytarabine and etoposide. After 6 rounds of chemo yuk yuk i will go through the stem cell transplant. So much for the next 8 or 9 months. Inlive in Brisbane Australia. So how goes it withbyou now? Roborjdz

    Celebration (Remission): After 1 year and 2 days, 6 rounds of methotrexate, 25 cycles of radiation, blood tests, transfusions, 80 days in hospital and 150 visits to the day the day cancer clinic my PET scan results came through today. My oncologist said the words we long to hear "the scan is clear - the lymphoma is GONE". Wow! Yippee! What a journey! Thanks be to GOD. Thanks to my career, cancer-concierge my wife Judy who with GOD on her side present a formidable team. Thanks to the what next community for your inspiration and support.

    Wow! What a journey. I was also dianosed with Burkitt's lymphoma in december 2013 almost exactly 12 months ago. My journey had much in common with yours. The 6 rounds of methotrexate chemo was ugly but effective. I finished radiation in september and now anxiously await the results of my Pet/CT scan due in 2 weeks. My platelets are low so we think there is a continuing problem with the bone marrow not recovering from the first round of chemo way back in january. All else is good.
