@pammyzammy Welcome to connect and Thank you very much for sharing your story. It brings much hope to those who been diagnosed with NHL. I have been on a watch and wait approach for a little over 3 yrs now.
I just had my followup check up and since it has been over 3 yrs now, I been told that I only need blood work and Ct scans once a yr . I have had perfect blood work the entire time. The lymph nodes near my aorta are enlarged and are considered on the smaller side. I do not have night sweats, weight loss or unexplained fevers. If it wasn't for a CT scan you would never know I have signs of this disease.
I had colon cancer which is how they found the NHL. The cancer marker for colon cancer show no evidence of disease. So they are fairly certain that is was all removed.
The first 3 years after diagnosis is a tell tale sign if these diseases will become troublesome according to my hematology Doctor. So far so good for me too. He feels that my Follicular Lymphoma will not require treatment for years to come. He can't rule out I wont need a treatment at some point. But as of now not to worry having NHL.
I hope both our stories inspire others with NHL.
Again thank you for your post.
