Posted by

happy Monday Caroline!

when does remission timeline begin pls?

dx january 2017 -

went into remission after round 2 (I think) which was approx June 2017.  

His mrd returned jan 2018 but then started to reduce and disappeared again within 6 months.

When does his “remission” begin ? From June 2017 or from the date no mrd was found (June 2018).  I think prob the June 2017???
