Hi, I'm Kenneth F Y.

What are the chances of getting Leukemia from long term Chemo? Such as six months agressive chemo followed by two years maintenence?

Chances are higher and the chance of it transforming to a more aggressive lymphoma but it is also known to transform to a weak form of lymphoma that needs no treatment to watch and wait. I hope yours disappears . I had a indolent form and was treated then it transformed to DBCL but quit after 2 cycles of Rchop because it was killing me literally and change of diet,essential oils, PRAYER it is shrinking away. LISTEN TO YOUR SELF, and not protocol medicine.
