Thanks for your response, Colleen. I appreciate your insight and the reference to the article on newsnetwork.mayoclinic. . . . My diagnosis was diffuse large b cell lymphoma/dlbcl.

@jals – I’m so glad to hear that you are in remission! I agree that you should talk to your oncologist now to find out what your risks are. I had chemo for breast cancer 25+ years ago and since then my immune system seems compromised. Most recently I was treated with immunosuppressive meds for an autoimmune illness. My blood counts were acceptable, but I was sick often. I’m off now, but I still seem more fragile than I should be.

You’re welcome @jals. In addition to @astaingegerdm, I’d also like to introduce you to other members who have experience with Large B Cell Lymphoma such as @grandpabob @fwpoole @ckeys and @sbergerkinkade. You may also wish to add to this discussion:

How are you doing with protecting yourself from infection?
