    That's great news! Congratulations on beating back the beast! You'll likely find that the Rituxan treatments are nothing much to get excited about. In fact, regular visits back to the clinic actually provide a bit of a mental crutch (at least did to me) that you were still being proactive in killing off any remaining cancer cells. I actually missed going in for a treatment after I was finished, after four years!
    DX - 5/2010 Grade 1, Stage 4 fNHL - w/spleen and 47% bone marrow involvement
    TX - 6/2010-12/2010: SWOG S0801- R-CHOP + Bexxar + Rituxan (4 yrs/quarterly)
    Restaged (post Bexxar) - PCR-Neg/NED :2/2011
    Rituxan maintenance ended 3/2015
    1/2018: Remission continues (>7 years) Down to one checkup/year!
