    Oh No

    My lymphoma was not in the skin; it was under the skin in my neck under the jawbone.

    Fatigue (tiredness)

    Side Effects

    At this time, 3 years post diagnosis and radiation and chemo, I have onset of increased tiredness, fatigue, muscle weakness and the need for much more sleep. These increased feelings have come on me rather suddenly.
