Non Hodgkin’s lymphoma
Would like to find a support group in regards to non hodgkins lymphatic B cell.
Hello I am new to this group. I have follicular lymphoma stage 4 grade 2. I was diagnosed in April . And have finished 6 months of chemotherapy treatments. And now going for tests on the 31 of October. I am having a bone marrow biopsy, and a colonoscopy and a pet scan. I am feeling a bit anxious. I have been able to keep my emotions under control but lately not so much. I wondering is this normal?

Hi Remie, just wanted to let you know the tiredness is the side effect of the chemo, it happens to all of us, I started taking Tumeric Cucumin , one tablet a day and it really helps, I finally feel alive again, the tiredness is almost gone. I also take one Alive vitamin for women and a magnesium each day,, I imagine this is helping give me more energy. Let me know how its going for you . always have the time. Lacey
Hello I got great news on my tests ! Cancer is gone! Colonoscopy was good too. I go back in 6 months for a recheck. I am feeling very blessed. Thanks for all of your support. Take care and God Bless you all. Love Remie
Dear Remie, That is such good news, congradulations, I have been in remission for almost two years now and I go for my cat scan in Jan, 2017, I feel so good, so here’s to all future good news. God Bless. Lacey
Thank you! Best of luck to you too. God bless Remie
Excellent.. That is wonderful.. God Bless…..
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.
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.
I don’t see any recent commentary, but I am a 65yo woman diagnosed in 2017 with NHL stage 1. After R-CHOP in 2017, a pet scan in Jan. 2018 was benign, and I am in “survivorship”, hoping for nothing to happen, but fearing that it will. I’d be happy to chat with anyone who wants to.
I was diagnosed in 2014 with follicular lymphoma. I had radiation for a tumor on my neck. My last pet scan in 2017 showed no cancer since.
Glad to hear that you are doing so well. Do you worry about recurrence ? My main obsession these days…
I have had non hodgekin’s lymphoma since 2814. My 2817 Pet scan was clear. No cancer visible. It doesn’t mean I don’t have any, it just isn’t enough to see.
