    Wolfe179, things may be overwhelming now, but they will get better. I was diagnosed with follicular lymphoma, stage 4, in 2005 at age 60. Since then, I have lived a fairly full life (until recently when I developed some spinal problems). I even went on a mission trip to Armenia in 2011. If you have any questions, someone on this site can help.

    I just want to say things will get better. I was diagnosed with follicular lymphoma, stage 4, in 2005 at age 60. I have lived a fairly full life since then.

    LeeAnnP, You may be overwhelmed right now, but things will get better. I was diagnosed with follicular lymphoma, stage 4, in 2005 at age 60. I've lived a fairly full life since then. I've had three recurrences, on watch and wait for five years now. If you have any questions, please ask, one of us can help.

      Thank you. This is a weird situation...I have a seven inch tumor in my spleen and a small cyst on my pancreas. Even though it’s been determined as NHL it is not in my lymph nodes or bone marrow. Isolated strictly to those 2organs. They will treat with aggressive chemo since they can’t determine the strain of NHL.

After some initial issues, I have lived a fairly normal life including a mission trip to Armenia in 2011. I am now dealing with some late effects of chemo. If you have any questions, just ask.

      I was diagnosed with stage 3 follicular lymphoma in feb. I have done 2 treatments of bendamustine and gazyva. Side effects are not good but change with each infusion. Let me know what your treatment will be.

    Berndog1955, hang in there. I'm not sure what is happening to you, hope it is palliative care. Prayers for you.
