Well we finally have all the answers to what I have and what treatments I'm going to go through.
Its just stage 2 ALK negative large cell lymphoma with some lump in my chest area.
I start treatment next week. Chemo one day. 24 hours later I go back for a mixer of other meds. Once every 3 weeks. I should be finished around late March or early April..
Honesty I'm not looking forward to the maybe side effects. I want to continue to work but my doctor has advised me not to.
She wants me to go on temporary disability.
I work around 100's of people..
My cancer has already lowered my immune system. Treatment will just about wipe it out.
Hi Wegotthis. Thanks for letting us know! I’ve actually been thinking of you every day and wondering how you are. At least you have a plan now. We all react so differently to the chemo and hopefully it won’t be too difficult for you. All the best, prayers and love coming from me🙏💕. Linda G
good that you have some answers now. What you have and what treatments you'll be having. However, I still find this quite difficult to deal with. For me, I always seem to be waiting for another test, another test result, how the meds are working and so on. Its almost a full time job managing the meds, tests and various doctors appointments. Whatever you decide regarding work, I hope it works out. There may be some risk associated with 'C19' in your workplace and your immune system. I believe work definitely has a place in treatment and meds recovery in that it keeps the mental focus on other things, along with good diet, active lifestyle and sleep.
