A Patient's Experience
Can anybody tell me what this treatment is like?
“In the beginning, it was the other patients at the photopheresis centre that kept me coming. Since it took a while [to start seeing results], I wanted to stop. But the others kept with me and encouraged me to stay. So I did—and I’m glad I did. Photopheresis has helped me tremendously.” *
Many people live with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) for many years, and many of them have been helped by THERAKOS™ Photopheresis. So it’s important to know that you’re not alone. Sometimes it helps to hear their voices, to understand that they once faced the same feelings, the same anxieties.
“The tormenting part about CTCL, for me, was the itching. And now [with photopheresis], it’s almost gone, almost nil. I’ve been getting treatments for about four years and...maybe once in a while I’m a little tired the day after, but that’s all.”*
