      I have had an aggressive T-Cell Lymphoma three times (PTCL-NOS), another aggressive T-Cell Lymphoma once (AITL), and Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS, precursor to leukemia) once or twice, depending on how you count it. Three years ago this month, I had all three simultaneously. Also had a transplant and have had no sign of either lymphoma for three years. The MDS tried to come back, but my new immune system whacked it.

    Thank you so very much for your answer! I've been so frightened that I haven't been thinking straight.

    Thank you!! I don't see the dr for another week and I've been severely depressed. I got day Vinci surgery and was super glued together. Hugs to you dear lady. You have eased my heart.

      I know that the doctor is waiting for the reports to come back. My gyn/oncologist called as soon as he had the results. If you are not comfortable O would get a second opinion. Stay strong and No One Fights Alone!

      I had an emergency hysterectomy/oopharectomy and debulking this past January - when I had my followup appointment, I asked the doc if he thought he got it all. He was very open and honest and stated that he got everything he could SEE with his naked eye (and whatever goggles they wear during surgery) - in other words, they cannot guarantee they got microscopic cancer cells because they just cannot be seen.

      My surgeon was thorough and had a great reputation but not much by way of warmth or personality ... while I was hoping to get more from him by way of empathy, he did his job - the surgery ....

      I would move forward and put more emphasize on the chemotherapy doc and how you feel about that person... I'm not thrilled with my current chemo doc, but the girls and guys in the office are really caring ... and usually (for the most part) return phone calls and answer questions... sometimes, these docs are so deep into their science, they don't communicate very well...

      If you have any questions, ask them. You need to have peace of mind. Get a copy of everything to review on your own time. Pamper yourself and if anything seems a little odd,get answers.
