Hello @jjohnson8747

I appreciate you sharing your story on Connect. It was very encouraging to know that someone had a good experience with radiation treatment.

If you care to share more, how are you doing now? I take it that the lymph node must be reduced in size? Are other treatments and/or follow-ups planned for the future?

I wish you well and I look forward to hearing from you again.

Teresa

Yes the lymph node is "normal"size now. I had 6 rounds of chemotherapy October through March for Follicular Lymphoma with good results. My PET scan had revealed that I was filled with bulky lymph nodes above and below the diaphragm. About 2 months afterward the large node appeared. I had two rounds of low dose radiation and it was shrinking within a week. I would say dry mouth is the worst side effect and after a month it's a lot better. I am on a every other month maintenance schedule of a rituximab infusion.
