Hi @maisyann, welcome to Connect.
I’m tagging @kjs1015 @aamarion @diana63 @djzlady96 to see if they will return to talk about their experiences with Non Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Maisy Ann, when were you diagnosed? What treatment are you getting or have you had?

I was diagnosed last March. I have had six rounds of bimustin and rituxin therapy. I am now in remission and will be on a two year maintenance of rituxin every other month with PET and CT scans every two or three months.

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.

In addition to the great community here, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) offers links to support groups as well: http://www.lls.org/support-resources
The American Cancer Society has a list of NHL resources that could be helpful to tap into, too: http://www.cancer.org/cancer/non-hodgkinlymphoma/detailedguide/non-hodgkin-lymphoma-additional

I have Non Hodgkin Follicular Lymphoma, I was diagnosed on 1/5. My Lymphoma was found two weeks after finding my cecum cancer. When my surgeon ordered a CT scan, after my polyp came back cancerous. sighing.. double trouble. Cecum cancer was a stage 1 had surgery to remove that. The Lymphoma is on a watch and wait approach.. since I have no symptoms other than swollen lymph nodes near and around my aorta. Not sure if you heard of this book? I purchased it to and it has lots of helpful information. “Living with Lymphoma: A Patient’s Guide” by Elizabeth M. Adler. I wish you the best.
I would like to know more about your operation’s details and the food that

@maisyann, how are you doing?
Thank you for the posting. I am still in remission. I have PET and CT scans every two months and also receive Rituxin treatments every other month. This is a two year maintenance treatment unless the scans show my cancer has returned.
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.

Welcome to Connect, @muskegonsid. I’m glad you found us so that we can accompany you on this return to the “journey”. I’d like to introduce you to @maisyann @aamarion and @travelgirl. Also please meet @hopeful33250. She’s checked in to the cancer train for a third time, and is one of our Connect mentors.
Muskegonsid – what is your next step? Have you had an appointment with your oncologist?
HiThankyou very much for your kind message. I was diagnosed nearly four years ago with follicular lymphoma NHL , stage 3, and immediately began chemotherapy R CHOP which I responded to extremely well. I then stayed on track with what we call the four pillars, vitamin D ( sunshine) , exercise, sleep and diet. I enjoyed a good lifestyle during this time. Last November however, I had another surge( transformation ) not sure of the terminology but it came back. I was then chosen to have a stem cell transplant . I completed the chemotherapy for preparation R ICE but unfortunately failed at the harvest time. The chemo worked for a short time but lymph nodes are on the growth again. I am classified as palliative and am having mostly a very good life. I live in New Zealand so I know treatment may differ but I just thought it may be good to read how are people are dealing with similar prognosis etcThank you
