    I am sorry to hear that you have follicular lymphoma. I received your exact diagnoses May, 2012, began your exact treatment in July and achieved remission in January, 2013. You will get better! I highly recommend that you become a member of LymphomaSurvival.com. Robert is a 25-year follicular lymphoma survivor and the site is educational, upbeat and super helpful!

    I mostly use Tylenol Arthritis formula, but I have Tylenol 3 with codeine to use, too. I try not to use the
    Tylenol 3 because it leaves me feeling "drugged". I find that the back pain "fades" several days after treatment, then returns when I get the next treatment. My nausea does this, too. I hope that your doctor can prescribe a helpful medicine for your husband.

    Hi, marmot,
    Your diagnoses is identical to mine. I'm a 61 year old male, diagnosed with follicular lymphoma on May 23, 2012.
    In October, I will receive cycle 4 of my six cycle Rituximab/Bendamustine teatment. I am stage 4A and I am in a
    clinical trial at MD Anderson. I also joined lymphomasurvival.com and have found it helpful. Try to take good care of
    yourself by walking each day, eating decently and by getting plenty of rest. My treatments cause tiredness,
    nausea and out-of-breathness for several days after each treatment. You might have no side effects or different
    side effects. Side effects can differ with each cycle. I make a protein shake to sip on for the first few days after
    each treatment. If I can help in any way, send an e-mail. My wife and I live in New Orleans and I fly to MD Anderson for my treatments each month. I have fine medical care and 2013 will be better than 2012. It will be the same for you!
