I have NHFL, Grade I, Stage IV. I just completed 8 Rituxan infusions. Do you know what grade yours is? If it is idolent (slow growing) the tumors wax and wane. My oncologist said I can expect remissions and relapses. If you do have a relapse, they will treat it. Did you have the lung nodules originally or are they something new? If your oncologist said not to worry, it is easy to say, but I wouldn't. With an indolent lymphoma, you can't stay in remission forever and when you relapse, you will get treated again. You can have this for many years and although it is not cureable, it is very treatable. Sometimes remissions last for years and sometime they don't. The good thing is that you can keep treating it. Good luck to you.
Thank you for answering my questions. I have Idolent lymphoma that got agressive thats why I was treated with chemo and rituxan now Im on maintenance rituxan.The nodual was there before chemo went away after treatment now it's back even though Im on the rituxan. I probally need to be more agressive when talking with my dr.I will keep you in my prayers and again thank you for answering my post.
