Doubt he'll be back this season, but I expect him to fully recover. By the sounds of it, he's determined to kick it.

This is a relatively rare form of leukemia and he's got a tough road ahead of him. His best shot is with MD Anderson so we can hope for the best.

Default Re: David Quessenberry Out

I have discovered that Quessenberry has been diagnosed specifically with T-cell lymphoblastic non-hodgkins lymphoma. T-cell as opposed to B-cell is quite uncommon (15% / 85% ratio), and T-cell generally carries a significantly poorer prognosis. The lymphoblastic variety makes up only 2%. In most cases, lymphoblastic lymphoma progresses to Stage IV prior to diagnosis. Tumors in this stage have spread to the bone marrow, spleen, and central nervous system. Chemotherapy, with or without radiation therapy, is the classic therapy, but bone marrow transplants have shown great response in appropriate cases, especially in cases of first time recurrences. As long as the disease is caught before significant bone marrow involvement is present, with intensive therapy, this particular T-cell variant the Quess has can sometimes be cured or placed in long term remission (~50%), even in stage 4.

Not knowing his disease's exact extent of involvement, I join in wishing Quess a complete recovery and a return to the Texans following his lengthy intensive treatments, and an adequate post-treatment rest and significant "rebuild" period.

I was just going to post similar info, thanks Doc. Folks this does not sound good especially with him saying chest cold symptoms which could mean metastases to lungs/stomach. This is the type cancer my younger brother died of 1998. Mike thought it was a sore throat & put off going to doctor until I got involved. Diagnosed in February, dies in August as it advanced very quickly. Hopefully treatment has advanced as chemo offered little for my brother. His last couple months were terrible.

This is terrible news indeed and Non-Hodgkin's T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma doesn't have a good prognosis as CnD mentioned. But I can tell you as someone who has worked at Anderson: it's the place to be if you have cancer. It's all cancer all day everyday from basic research to translational medicine. It's going to be a tough battle but with Anderson's experts and Quessenberry's strength I hope he'll come out victorious.

I hate even thinking or talking about cancer. So I hate saying this, but even when he kicks it, he's going to be a shell of himself physically. Those of you who have been around cancer patients know what a toll it and chemo take on the body. 300 lb. physical specimens don't just happen, and building one from a cancer stricken, chemo depleted body is going to be one helluva task. I hope he makes it back to the NFL as a player, but I seriously doubt 2015.

That's certainly a very important point you emphasized. That's exactly why in my post I qualified, after "an adequate post-treatment rest and significant "rebuild" period.

Sorry to hear about your brother. I did want to clarify one thing. Lung metastasis is not very classic to this particular type of malignancy, especially early on. Quessenberry was reported to have had fatigue and coughing for a week prior to his workup. The thymus gland, which is located just behind the upper sternum (breast bone) and just in front of the trachea (windpipe that leads to the lungs), is where this malignancy first begins to grow. As is grows in that confined space, it cannot expand forward because of the non-yielding boney sternum, so it compresses the tracheal tube behind it.........causing difficulty in breathing and coughing.....often one of the first presenting symptoms (along with fatigue) in this condition. So it is possible that this malignancy may have been caught earlier than later, possibly affording him a better prognosis. It is still mostly up to the extent of bone marrow involvement (a status were are at this time not privy to) which will be the most significant factor in determining his potential for a good response to treatments.
