Hey there! I had 6 rounds of CHOP chemotherapy and one month of radiation for Non-hodkins Lymphoma when I was 18. This summer will mark my ten years of complete remission 🙂 Let me know if you have any questions or just need to vent about anything! I would be glad to help you any way I can.

I would like to know more about your operation’s details and the food that
helped you.

@seekhealth2016, I was negligent in welcoming to Connect. Welcome!
Only in rare cases, is non-hodgkin’s lymphoma treated with surgery. Here’s more info about treatments used http://www.cancer.org/cancer/non-hodgkinlymphoma/detailedguide/non-hodgkin-lymphoma-treating-general-info

In this thread, @travelgirl asks about health diets for cancer patients. There’s some great info there. https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/healthy-diets-for-cancer-patients/

@seekhealth2016 are you currently undergoing treatment for NHL?

I Am done with my chemo treatments and I am now on a two year Maintenance of Rituxin treatment every other month and I also have PET and CT scans every two months. I am still in remission at this time. Are being treated for NHL?

I do not know what NHL means, I have pancreatic cancer and I am looking for
the best supplements and news about the treatment.

Hi @seekhealth2016, NHL stands for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which is what the people are talking about on this discussion thread.
Let me introduce you to people talking about pancreatic cancer. Click this link https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/i-have-just-been-diagnosed-with-pancreatic-cancer-1-12-inch-mass/ to see the discussion and meet SJG and Ronmac. I hope you’ll join us there.

My diffuse large cell B lymphoma was initially treated with 2 small intestine resections and is being followed with R CHOP for 6 sessions. I hope for a remission. I am a 65 yr. old woman.

Thanks for the great article on a healthy diet. I have had cancer three times: colo-rectal cancer in 2009 with complications (spent 2 months in Mayo hospital in Phoenix and two surgeries); lung cancer in 2016 (upper left lobe partial removal); non-Hodgkins lymphoma in 2017 and continuing. I have always eaten a plant based diet with very little meat. But it is interesting from the article how the cancer develops over the years. I copied it and will read it more carefully later. I'm on a chemo regimen of 6 sessions of RCHOP and will be starting my 5th treatment April 2. I spent a day in the ER last week with a very low white blood cell count (neutropenia) so have been housebound ever since.

Hello dear..how did u cope with thw side effects??…after ur chemo..wat else did u do?

Same here

For the nausea I took Zofran and Phenergen and ate smaller, frequent, small portions. For the exhaustion I have never gone back to my pre NHF level of activity. I have gotten used to doing less. To be honest, I still take the anti nausea meds because I can't stand to eat otherwise. But I have had intractable nausea since early 2013. When I got diagnosed with the NHF tumor in the small intestine in 2017, and they removed it and did R-CHOP, we all thought that the nausea would disappear. No such luck. But I feel fortunate to not be worse, so onward and upward.

Are you by any chance talking about B-PLL? probably not. I started a discussion on that,but no one else seems to be connected with such a rare cancer.It's nice to be unique for some things,but not cancer. No research on how to treat ,and what to expect.
