My first treatment was not so nice. I seemed to react to some of the chemicals and especially the prednisone. I was given 200 MG. Wow it hit me like a ton of bricks. Now I eat much more before I take the pills.

Later treatments going a bit better.

I am so sorry to hear you have Non-Hodgkins. I am not a cancer patient but a care giver to family with Hodgkins. My sister had a rough time with Prednisone and they prescribed Atavan for nausea. Atavan is used also for anxiety, but also helped the nausea.

If I may ask, what protocol are they using to treat your non-hodgkins?

I wish you the best with your treatment.

The answer to your question is sessions with R-chop and four sessions with R-ice.

Thank you and I hope you are doing better.

I am not familiar with R-chop, but I am with R-ice.

My sister did have R-ice at Shands (University of Florida) and it was not a good experience.
