    First Day of Chemo

    Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma two weeks ago and will be starting chemo on Tuesday. I will be having chemo every three weeks. What should I expect and how should I handle the following weeks in between chemo?

      Wow thank you all for all the replies and support! I really appreciate each and every one of you. I took everyone's advice and drank lots of water yesterday. I felt back to normal around 3 am this morning and then felt slight nausea this morning. I took the anti-nausea meds the doctor prescribed for me and have been eating today. I went back in for my neulasta shot today. Praying that everything goes well. God bless you all, sending all my best wishes to you. <3

      Hi, I had Non Hodgkins Lymphoma Stage IV diagnosed in March. Went through 6 rounds of RCHOP had 1 blood transfusion worked during chemo and felt great the entire time. In remission now. Good Luck and will keep you in my prayers.
