I was treated for anaplastic large cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma about half way through 2013. I endured 6 cycles of CHOP. Nausea and vomiting were a huge issue. I did get good control once I was on the right antiemetics but I was still sick on chemo days. It was like having a terrible hangover but I remembered what I did the night before. Haha. I have a 12 month check up in 3 days time. I've never felt so nervous/anxious in my life. My stomach is tied up in knots, my bowel motions have been weird, I've been having aches and pains in random places in my body (it likes to rotate!) and feeling more tired than usual. I've also had a cough that has been hanging around longer than it should. These things make me think that the cancer has come back. I tell myself not to over analyse but I just can't help it. Prior to my diagnosis I was having recurring dreams that forewarned me that something really bad was going to happen to me. I haven't had any of these dreams lately so I'll take that as a good sign. I've been keeping my mind occupied with baking, exercise and meditation which have helped a lot. I am hoping and praying that I get the all clear...
