My 3rd treatment for my B-Cell Lymphoma cancer was R-Chop. Nine months later it has spread and I’m wondering what is left to treat me with? Never considered life expectancy during my 11 years with B-Cell but now I’m concerned that I am going to be told I only have this amount of time left. Do I still have hope?
After almost five years from DBCL (non Hodgkin’s) my latest scans and blood work appear fine except for low hemoglobin and the t-cell rearrangement test. The T-cell rearrangement test was positive for T cell lymphoma which I had at the time of my initial diagnosis. My oncologist feels it isn’t significant at this time since all scans are clear. I’m somewhat insecure about these results. Anyone have experience with this?
I don't know what is the matter with me. I am still fatigued. Sunday I was up and about, happy, etc. Monday I spent the entire day in bed....so fatigued. Informed my oncologist. He told me it has nothing to do with my chemotherapy because my last dose was 8 months ago. Said that my labs look great, etc.
Can someone please tell me if I am imaging this? I love to work and be active.
We are in Sacramento. My stepdad was diagnosed this week with SLL and inflamed lump nodes in his neck. They are just monitoring for now, which I suppose is good. Is there anyone here that is in Sacramento that has a good oncologist at Kaiser they like? Anyone with the same diagnosis or symptoms? What tests have you had done? We have just had a CT and Blood Work. Should we have a lymph node removed and tested? Doctor said we could but didn’t give much detail as to the benefit. Thank you.

Doctor suggested a chemo for 6 months twice per month, however due to her weaknesses and old age we decided to live with it, especially she won’t accept going through this procedures. We need to have… read more

Do you use things spiritual in dealing with your cancer?
If so what do you use? Prayer? Meditation? Certain books? Church, synagogue or mosque? Music? Poetry? I ask because I'm always looking for useful spiritual tools. Personally I use 12 step material and the book A Course In Miracles along with prayer. And there are certain organizations that I've found useful, that send out free booklets and magazines. But I'm always looking for useful things to add to my repertoire.
