Thank you so much for being so open and honest. Like I said I was diagnosed an 2017. I am stage 4 follicular lymphoma my lymph node was removed the virchow node in my neck was removed and it was found to be cancerous since that time I have another one in the exact same place that's swollen up real big and stays there swollen and they don't want to do anything to it or with it. I've been to Cancer Treatment Centers of America so I've got my second opinion and I guess watchful waiting is what I'm supposed to do. I do argue about the pain though I have been in almost constant pain since three or four months before I was diagnosed I do not know that it is from the lymphoma but I would assume that that's what's causing you very miserable here in Arkansas
I am currently on watch and wait program. I was diagnosed April 3, 2017. This watch and wait approach is droving me crazy. I am nervous all the time…every time I have a new pain for a day or two I begin to wonder and panic a bit. Do you have a lot of pain? I sure do
Sep 21, 2018 · Introduction ~ Question on when to try weaning off meds in Chronic Pain
You post could have been written by me. Our story is so similar. I would not try weaning off of any of my meds until the serious things are taken care of I just cannot live my life in pain excruciating pain every day so I take my meds even though they're getting a pretty bad rap I still take all my meds just as I'm instructed and just try to hold it together one day at a time good luck to you and your journey
