Aug 25, 2016 · Non Hodgkin's lymphoma in Blood Cancers & Disorders

Thankyou 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 etc
Thank you
