My niece (14 year old) has a non-hodgkin's lymphoma, she just done with her chemotherapy and monoclonal therapy. We just got the ct-scan and the result is good, all the masses in her abdomen were gone but her ductal area is still mildly dilated and the spleen is prominence, still bigger than normal size. Also, her left leg was fractured but it is healing.
Anyone can tell me what does it mean? Why her spleen is still bigger than normal size and why the ductal area still dilated. By the way, she has an stent (PTBD).
Other thing, is anyone knows anybody survived from NHL? How's the survival rate of this illness? Please give me some thoughts.
