    My wife is in constant pain

    I'm back with her in the hospital again. She needed to use the bathroom, but she couldn't even sit up without being in crippling pain. Is this normal for non-hodgkins lymphoma?

    Is there anything I can do to help her? I'll try anything just to ease some of the pain. This has all been just facts after facts. She's only been battling this full on for a couple days now. And I'm honestly scared.

    Hi, I am so sorry that she is going through this. Has she had treatment, in treatment or yet to have treatment?
    I do know that shrinkage occurs very quickly once chemo starts but I can be of no further help other than saying that. What does her Onc say? Have they considered radiation to shrink a large tumour that may be pushing on other organs causing her pain?

    Hi dres

    I wrote to you in the lymphoma forum. With PMBCL this pain is very common and it will go away soon and by soon I mean at the most 2 or 3 weeks, probably and hopefully sooner.

    please read your thread in the lymphoma forum.

    Great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

    I may not have gone where I intended to go,
    but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
