    Thanks for letting me in

    Hi,
    I am a new entrant to this forum. I am overwhelmed with the kind of inputs available here out of the first hand experience of many of those who have fought and still fighting a tough fight. I am sure, I shall have enough strength and courage out of these to go ahead with my struggle.

    I have just been diagnosed as suffering from NHL. USG... CT ... FNAC ... PET CT ...True Cut Biopsy of Lymph node, ... Bone marrow Biopsy are all done. Waiting for the last two biopsy results to come. Shall seek your suggestions

    Thanks to all again.
    Regards-
    Debasis

    Hi and welcome, once you know the type and sub group of lymphoma let us know and we can help and share our experiences, if they tell you the treatment you are to have and you share that it helps too.
    NHL DLBC aggressive stage 4B advanced
    diagnosed april 09
    after 8 rchop and a couple of delays, in remission
    some long term side effects to manage post treatment
    some blips and investigations on the journey but now
    22nd oct 2014 discharged no more hospital visits


    we are all on a roller coaster ride, riding blind never knowing where the highs and lows are.
