I have had swollen lymphnodes in my groin for about 15 months, my right armpit for about 4 months, and in my neck which the hema-oncologist discovered about almost 6 weeks ago. Night sweats have been occurring for about 15 months now, however they used to happen randomly here and there (few times a month) they are now every time I fall asleep. I now wake up 2-3 times a night to change because I am drenched and end up shivering for 30-40 min afterwards. I have had terrible joint/body pain for the… read more

Our son needed every other month Rituxan or Rhituximab and it saved his life
Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma
I am reading here that a lot of people have been receiving treatment with a lesser stage (I & 2) than I have. (I have Stage 3 *follicular* non-hodgkins lymphoma). I have been on watch and wait since my diagnosis in April 2019. I'm wondering why the oncologist is holding off on any treatment. Why wait until it gets bad? Has anyone gotten treatment while being asymptomatic? If you do have symptoms, at what point did your Dr decide to start treatment?
I am not actively taking treatments right now but I just found a decent size lump on the inside of my left elbow. I am finding myself very agitated and little to no patience. That is totally opposite of my normal disposition. I am sooooo tired all the time. I don’t know what is normal because of my extremely stressful job or if this is part of the disease. I have follicular lymphoma.
have a question. I have been clear for 4 years, but in the last 6 months I have been having bone pain. My oncologist ran panels of bloodwork. The normal panels like CBC, etc, Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, inflammation, all came back clear, which is great, but im still in pain daily. Has anyone experienced anything like this with lymphoma? Am I experiencing a recurrence, or is this all together something unrelated?
I went to my nephrologist Monday, and both my magnesium and potassium were both low, so he increased my intake... but I do have an appt with my oncologist tomorrow as well...I will ask bvb about the… read more
I was diagnosed with Follicular Non Hudgkin's Lymphoma last year in November. Had 4 Month Chemo with Bendeka. Now in remission, and was recommended to do a 2 year maintenance treatment with [[treatment:Rituxan Hycela:5c648bd265df61506ecba9a7]]. Anybody else has the same treatment? Is it standard to do it after chemo? What are the long term side effects? I feel fine, but still worry about this
Anybody completed the 2 year? Was any recurrence of the cancer shortly after finishing treatment.… read more
He refused chemotherapy and refuses to talk about his situation. He does nothing but sit and watch tv. Are there any suggestions about how to be supportive of his choices?
Husband has first round of chemo (R CHOP) on Thursday. He is normally very healthy and active...what can we expect him to be like after treatment? Does pain dimish and fatigue get better right away?
