I have large B cell lymphoma (NHL). It seems like chemo is the most recommended treatment. However, I am having a very hard time accepting that chemo is the “best.”
Has anyone used alternative treatments, that have been successful, in treating large B cell lymphoma?

Sorry I was offered 6 treatments of RCHOP every 3 weeks, and I started first part of Feb , in Jan I had 5 successful radiation on c7 , and in July I hit remission , so it worked well for me, and my body at almost 79 handled it fine, a little fatigue but I do believe in it. My oncologist suggested 4 treatments of methotrexate to prevent it coming back so will do 4 th spinal infusion tomorrow, and be done for now. Good luck

Jenn2,
Hi and welcome to the site. I too have/had DLBCL stage IV. I had treatments of RCHOP chemo and have been in remission for about a year now. I was so ill when I was diagnosed that RCHOP chemo was the best for me. I had all the "B" symptoms. Fever, night sweats, nausea, weight loss etc. I believe that if I wouldn't have had RCHOP I wouldn't be alive right now. That and by the grace of God. If you have any questions please feel free to ask me. Good luck in your decision and I added you to my team. I hope you have a peaceful and blessed day. Kelly

Was treated with Rituxin (also used for large B cell) along with CHOP/chemo for follicular lymphoma in 2005!
