I’m on Gazyva and Bendamustine for 6 months, then transition to monthly Gazyva maintenance for 2 yrs, as immunotherapy remission maintenance. For stage 3 Follicular B cell Lymphoma. The data is very good for maintenance, with improved 5 yr PFS (progression free survival)

No objection to having it. Very few side effects.

I started out with single cell follicular non hodgkins lymphoma in 2003. First treatment was CHOP, with Rituxon as a maintenance treatment. I have gone 5 years in between chemo treatments twice now. So I believe you are on the right track. No side effects. My best to you.
