At this visit, she suggested we continue treatment with the CCNU protocol instead of the Wisconson protocol because some of her symptoms point to the lymphoma being in her Central Nervous System. She said the CCNU crosses the blood/brain barrier better which is needed if the lymphoma is in the CNS. All my research tells me that CCNU(which is just a single chemo drug and not a cocktail like the Wisconson Protocol is) is not as effective and the remisssion rates are shorter. BUT if it is in the CNS, the Wisconson Protocol won't do much. I'm just so confused about what is the best for my girl. 4 days after her second treatment, she is back to acting like herself which she hasn't been for weeks. I just want the most time and best quality of life for Piper.
