Mar 24, 2016 · Non Hodgkin's lymphoma in Blood Cancers & Disorders

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.

Hey there, I had Non-Hogkins Lymphoma as well and was diagnosed when I was 18. I also had CHOP chemotherapy and had chemo brain for a long time… But I did eventually get over it 🙂 I hope you are doing well and wish you the best of luck!

Mar 2, 2012 · Dr. Burzynski Research Clinic in Cancer

Hello there, I had Non-Hogkins Lymphoma when I was 18 and was treated at the Mayo Clinic by Dr.Reeder. He called the other mayo clinics and discussed my treatment plan with them to make sure it was the best one to give me. They saved my life, I am not supposed to be here because I had stage 4. I would look into that for sure because he deals with Lymphoma cancers, it is his specialty. Best of luck to you and your family 🙂

Mar 2, 2012 · Relationships after Chemo in Cancer

Hey there, I was only 18 when I got sick and had been dating my boyfriend for 6 months at the time. I had chemotherapy and radiation and my body changed a lot and I was bald and had very low self esteem. We both kept a journal and it seemed to help. I tried to keep things normal as they were before and never be sorry for myself or have a pity party. Seven years later we are still together and now getting married. There were times where I thought we were not going to make it because he seemed, “checked out” but I honestly think he did not know how to deal with it any other way. They have to check out a little bit so they can stay sane in some situations. Chemotherapy and all of the drugs sometimes made me into a very angry bitter person, and unfortunately we take most of that anger out on the people we are closest to because we know they will not leave us. It does take a toll on them over time, so we need to be careful about that. It is a very normal thing thing for family members to do.
