Jun 3, 2012 · ON APRIL 20TH MAYO CLINIC INFORMED ME THAT I WAS CANCER FREE. in Just Want to Talk

ON APRIL 20TH MAYO CLINIC INFORMED ME THAT I WAS CANCER FREE. I HAD BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH NON-HODGKIN’S LYMPHOMA FOLLICULAR B-CELL STAGE IV IN 2007. I RECEIVED ZEVALIN, A RADIOIMMUNOTHERAPY, ON FEBRUARY 16, 2012. BECAUSE MY PLATELETS WERE ONLY 105,000 GOING INTO THE TREATMENT I HAD EXTREMELY LOW BLOOD CELL COUNT SIX WEEK LATER. EVERYTHING RETURN TO NORMAL BY LATE APRIL. BUT MID MAY THE PLATELETS FELL BY 50 % AND THE WHITE BLOOD CELLS ARE DROPPING NOW IN EARLY JUNE. I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM ANY ONE WHO HAS BEEN ON ZEVALIN AND ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE WITH IT. DIANA

PASTOR ROBIN, I DID NOT HAVE CHEMO AND RITUXIN. MY INIITIAL TREATMENT WAS TWO YEARS OF RITUXIN. I HAD FATIGUE AND TREMORS DURING AND FOLLOWING TREATMENT. LATER I HAD MEDICATION CHANGES AND THESE SYMPTOMS STOPPED. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU RESEARCH ALL THE MEDICATION YOU ARE TAKING AS YOUR ANSWER MAY LAY WITH THE RITUXIN EXASBURATING THE SIDE EFFECTS OF ONE OR MORE OF YOUR OTHER MEDICATION. I, NOW, KNOW THAT THE FATIGUE AND TREMORS WERE CAUSED BY AN INTERACTION BETWEEN THE TWO DRUGS. AFTER 11 MONTHS OF REMISSION MY fNHL RETURNED. I CHOSE ZEVALIN FOR MY SECOND ROUND OF TREATMENT ON FEB.16,2012. I WOULD APPRECIATE SHARING YOUR EXPERIENCES WITH THE ZEVALIN TREATMENT. DIANA
