Hey Joplopper......I had the chemo (Vincristine, Ritoxin, & Cytoxin....spelling?) 4years ago. It worked. I was diagnosed with a possible lymphoma, but never confirmed. The chemo turned my immune system off & started it from scratch, which worked. Blood levels all normal now, except for slightly elevated iron. When first went to MD, anemia of unknow origin, but with elevated iron, was the diagnosis. A hemotologist/oncologist did the follow-up & treatment. Now I have chronic leg & arm pain. Fro my own research, it could be from the iron, an aftereffect of chemo (Vincristine especially), or a million others. I was just hoping someone had a similar history. I will never regret going thru the chem, even if that's the problem now, as I would not have lived long with my levels diving like they were. Took 11 pints of blood initially to get them moving up!
