Relapse?

For anyone who has relapsed from adult ALL, how long was it from maintenance till it happened? Was it weeks, months, days, or did it happen during maintenance? I am worried about my husband. Something just doesn't feel right. Maybe I am just being paranoid.

    Hope your just be paranoid....My wife situation may be different than your husbands...she relapsed just at a year out from her first BMT.   She relapsed in August and her second transplant was done in December.   My wife was only on the standard treatment for ALL for a couple of weeks until they learned she had the PH+ mutation.

    My son relapsed just a few short weeks into maintenance.  His was T cell disease, and had a higher risk of relapse then standard ALL.   He woke up one morning and said his face felt numb, and at that moment I just knew he relapsed in the CNS....He went on to have an SCT and is doing well today.  I hope that you are just being paranoid, which isn't hard to do when you are dealing with this horrible disease.  Hope all is well.....
