Zevalin® - For Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Your oncologist will take complete blood cell counts and platelet counts every week for at least 12 weeks following the full course of Zevalin treatment. Some people may be monitored more frequently. Your doctor will thoroughly review the side effects of Zevalin with you. Because the consequences of some side effects are life threatening, you should report any side effects to your doctor immediately, even if they occur months after your treatment. Your treatment is considered effective if your signs of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma get better or go away.
