Still There - femailady

Oh No Associated with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL). Posted on September 8, 2012 View this journey (12 Experiences)

My oncologist walks into the room with a grim look on his face. I get a sinking feeling & think to my self...Uh oh, this is not going to be good. My MD proceeds to tell me that there is still a small mass there. It has not gone away. I will be scheduled for surgery first to remove the offending mass that has attached itself to my spleen and part of my diaphram. Four days after surgery I show up for an appointment with a doctor at Stanford because that is where I will be going to get a bone marrow transplant. My Oncologist needs to extract some bone marrow from me first to see if they can use mine.
I knew nothing about bone marrow transplants and everything it entailed but I sure found out quick.
