Starting Bendamustine and Rituxin for Follicular Lymphoma

Posted by valandsheri @valandsheri, Jan 16 9:45pm

Hi – My husband has been diagnosed with Follicular Lymphoma and he will be starting treatment soon. He and his doctor have both agreed this is the best route for him. He is wondering how others have done with this treatment regarding side effects and quality of life during and after treatment. He is 75 years and in very good shape. He has a really good attitude too – I'm the one who is kind of panicking. He completed proton radiation therapy for prostate cancer almost 4 years ago and did quite well with it – but we're thinking this will be a different beast altogether. Any words of wisdom will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
