      I had a tumor on my spine. It made my left foot and right hand paralyzed for about 6mths. I had terrible nerve pain in my right hand. I had to have ocupational and. physical therapy.. I also had foot drop In my left foot. I have follicular non hodgkin's and I did TREANDA for chemo and rituxan which I still do now. The rituxan got rid of the tumors so now my hand and foot are recovering.

      I have a tumor on my spine. It was rather large 15cm and was pushing it's way in between my vertebra and causing some neurological problems as well as severe pain. If you would like more information please feel free to ask!! :-)

      Alya, was this tumor caused by follicular non hodgkins lymphoma and if so how long did it take for pain to go away once you started treatment. I am starting 3rd round of chemo.

      My husband was dx w/ Lg B cell NHL the end of Oct 2011. It has metastasized to the nerve endings of his L5 & S1 vertabrae. He did 6 rounds of R-CHOP. After the 3rd treatment they did a CT scan and said there where no visible evidence of tumors.

      He still has numbing pain in his left foot and leg where we have to rub to get some circulation into it.

      He now has numbing in his right leg/foot but thinks it is from the vinacristine (one of the chemo drugs)

      We will go next week or a PET Scan to see how well the treatment did for him... We think the dr. will send him to a neurologist next, but we will see :)

      Good luck

      HI. My husband has cancer in his spine. He was having back pain for over a year, and the doctor told him it was arthritis. Turns out it was DLBCL. He had 14 treatments of radiation to his thoracic and lumbar areas. It has definitely helped his back pain.

      I had a tumor on my spine, too. A MRI found it on my mom's bday, who died 19 yrs ago. Mine was severve back pains, that wouldn't go away with heat or ice. Then I had charley horse pains on the tops of my legs, that was so severve, that it kept me in bed for a day. Then my PCP advised me to go to Boston, Tufts hospital, where I was diagnoised with Diffuse large b-cell lymphoma. I got started with the chemo right away---R CHOP, and was in the hospital and rehab for 9 and half weeks. I had to learn how to use my legs again, and even now after done w/ chemo 3 months ago (july 2012), i still have tingling in my right foot, and sometimes my left foot, too.
