Hello, just diagnosed with lymphoma

Hey folks,

Hello. Yesterday I was told I had lymphoma. The oncologist is out of hte office until next week, so I have very little info. I don't know what kind of lymphoma, or what state. I think it is likley at a very early stage. I noticed a lump under my left jaw. It is about hte size of a golf ball. On Wednsday I see the oncologist for a complete break down of what I have, what are the treatment options, prognosis, etc. I also have MS that has recently become active again. Today I am just sitting back and breathing. Tomorrow I will begin with what is next. So hello to you all.

Hi @jcricket , yes , sorry to hear of your diagnosis. You would have had your appointment by now i guess , i hope it went well. I have had Lymphoma now for 7 years and mangaged to get on a clinical trial for a new drug and i’m doing really well with a pretty good long term prognosis. Let us know what you have etc when you have time, good luck .......david.

Re: Hello, just diagnosed with lymphoma

Well folks,

I found out today. I have b-cell non hodgkins lymphoma, large cell, high grade. I am going to have many more tests in the next few day/weeks. The doctor believes we caught it very early and is very confident he can cure this. My head is in a bit of a whirlwind right now so I am kind of rambling. But, the end result does look good. The next six months may be kind of tough, but I am quite hopeful to make it through this. 

THanks for checking in on me. I will write more tomorrow after I get my head together a bit.
