I Have STAGE IV NHL LARGE B CELL

I Have STAGE IV NHL LARGE B CELL

I just finished my 4th R-Chop chemotherapy and I also finished by 1st round of Lumbar Puncture with IT chemotherapy (3 more to go). I don't see that anyone else has to do the Lumbar Puncture with IT chemo. My PET scan came back clean and my first Lumbar Puncture showed no malignancy. Has anyone had both R-Chop and LP at the same time? It's not easy.

A MyLymphomaTeam Member said:

My husband has had 5 rounds of R-chop and 5 lumbar punctures with chemo. His pet scan came back clean and will have another one 8 weeks after last treatment.
