My husband was diagnosed with non hodgkins lymphoma in September. He has now had five cycles of R-CHOP chemotherapy and we have just been told that after cycle six he will have another two cycles of a different  type of chemo before the planned BEAM chemo and autologous stem cell transplant.  We have also been told that with the type of lymphoma (double expressor diffuse B cell) that the survival rate will not change with the transplant.  As you can probably imagine, I am finding all of this very confusing and confronting, and am hoping that someone who has had the same condition might be able give me some insight as to what to expect (good and bad - please don't sugar coat it) and reasons why you chose the treatment you did.
