    Default Serious question re specialist for Non Hodgkin lymphoma aftercare

    As some will know, Mr WB is currently in the UK having treatment for a grade 3 follicular/diffuse large B cell NHL.

    He is currently receiving the chemotherapy RIVE being Rituximab, Ifosfamide, Etoposide (VP16) and Epirubicin which is quite similar to ICE. It is hoped that his treatment and sufficient recovery will be effected for him to return home here to the DR by the end of July, at which point he will need to be monitored, scanned and receive check ups to ensure that the cancer is indeed either cured or in long term remission.

    Does anyone know of a suitable specialist, preferably in Puerto Plata or Santiago area (not Sto. Domingo due to distance) who is knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with the aftercare of this type of Non Hodgkin lymphoma?

    Maybe worth phoning Dr. Bailes and asking if he knows of anyone?

    I think you'll find it's in the emails we exchanged when Mr WB first became unwell last year, but if you don't find it there let me know & I'll send it again. It's also on the board here, search under his name.
