    Good day to you. You and I have much in common. We are almost the same age, both have Mantle Cell Lymphoma, Stage 4. I am here to tell you that you will be alright. I was diagnosed in Dec, 2011. I went thru Chemo, many radiation treatments and even the Hyperbaric chamber. Initially, I was given approx. 18-24 months. Today, I am still here and feel terrific. There are a few side effects I still have however, my day to day life is great. God Bless you. Hang in there my friend.

    Hello JoyMisty,

    I also have stage 4 Mantle Cell Lymphoma. I was told by an amazed doctor (my oncologist) that I am in complete remission. My cancer has disappeared completely. I was first diagnosed in late 2011, went thru 6 months of Chemo and 44 rounds of radiation. I have never felt better to be honest with you. Although I am tired much of the time, I don't complain. I am happy that I went through my treatment program and feel that had I not, I would not be here today.

    I wish you the best JoyMisty. If I can ever help you in anyway please let me know.

    Hello teddyfuzz, thank you for your positive thoughts. My original post states 4 radiation treatments, I meant to type 44. Oops!
    I have also heard that the hyperbaric chamber is going to make me feel better - that's something I have'nt experienced in many months but I'm almost always upbeat and positive! Thanks again!

      Lol! When I saw 4 radiation treatments I thought maybe you had gotten off easy. It would be great if the hyperbaric chamber made you feel better after what you've been through. Word on the street is that since it helps to repair your body, it can also make you appear younger. I tell ya, I wouldn't mind giving up a few of these wrinkles on my face. I'm so glad you are upbeat and positive. I try to stay that way also. Take care of yourself Rich!
