    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Non- Hodgkin's Lymphoma " LOW GRADE" Diagnosed on 09/25/12 after a fine needle biopsy of the one of the lymph nodes on the left axila. Diagnosis was re-conformed after surgical removal of lymph nodes for further biopsy. Went to Oncologist on 10/16/12. My options are: leave it untreated ( is very slow growing) or be treated with a drug named RITUZAN". After learning about the side efects of this drug, I'm VERY afraid of it.. Today 10/19/12, I had a PET scan and lab work. I'm scheduled for a bone marrow biopsy on l0/30/12.. At this point don't know which way to go. I need to connect with people that has gone through the same. I know it will help me a lot...please share with me your experience.!
