Prebiotics And Probiotics

Prebiotics And Probiotics

I was diagnosed with having Marginal Zone Lymphoma in January of this year. I am receiving Immuno and Chemo treatments twice a month. I am struggling horribly with nausea and not being able to eat right. I was wondering if I should consider taking a prebiotic and probiotic. Any advice and/or information would be greatly appreciated. 🙏 💜

Does Anyone Know If Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma Causes A Rash And Severe Itching?

Does Anyone Know If Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma Causes A Rash And Severe Itching?

This rash started on my upper arms and now it's all over my arms, lower legs and spreading to my abdomen, hips and face. My primary provider prescribed Triamcinilone Acetonide Cream eight days ago, but it isn't helping. Just wonder if anyone else has this problem.

A MyLymphomaTeam Member said:

My husband had Peripheral T Cell Lymphoma that revealed itself as a rash.
