Anyone else have Mantle Cell Lymphoma?

My chemo treatment is 2-part: A and B. They alternate every 3 weeks until I have had 3 of each. Part A is done as an out-patient but takes 7-9 hours. I have to stay in the hospital for 3 days when I have Part B. I am not a patient at Mayo, so I don't know how they do it.

Part A:
Cyclophosphamite
Doxorubisin
Viacristine
Rituxin

Part B:
Cytarabib
Rituxin

Where are you treated? From your description, your treatment is called R-HYPER CVAD. The protocol is pretty much the same for all centers. The treatment is pretty aggressive and my guess is that by the end you will feel the effects. There are many new "immunothereapy" drugs. Do you know why your doctor chose this?

What stage is it in.

Thanks for your information. I was just diagnosed with MCL and CCL at the age of 87. I am awaiting a meeting with the Oncology team at M D Anderson to discuss the treatments and schedules.
