    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Went to ER thinking I had a pinched nerve. Had back, groin and leg pain. Nite sweats but didn't clue in. Pain so sevre and found very low blood count. Ambulance down to Riverside Hosp in Columbus and had numerous tests than bone and bone marrow biopsy showing stage 4 b-cell lymphnoma including both kidneys, liver, spleen and bone marrow. Received 1st chop chemo treatment last Thurs and sent home Fri. No insurance, lost job I just got 2 weeks previous and I am in a stupor. I amew in the area so don't have many friends and I am divorced. I have my mom and step dad ( who have been with me) but not financially able to help and they are not taking this very well. I've been trying to find a support group in area to meet with and also trying to find help with rent and bills. Man, this is sure a hard pill to swallow.
