Long Term Remission

Last updated: September 2022

2006 DX non-Hodgkins follicular. I had no symptoms. I noticed a lump in the clavicle and pointed it out to my GP, after a biopsy, and 3 oncologists (the first 2 had nothing to offer me and suggested waiting and watching with a life expectancy of 10 years).

I decided on Sara Cannon Cancer Center 65 miles from my home in another state.
I was treated with Rituxan. Remained in remission. It is now 2022 no reoccurrence. I am a female age 60 plus. I have scans every 12 months. Approaching next visit in 7 weeks. ๐Ÿ™
