I was diagnosed with Stage IVA follicular large/small cell NHL which JUST started to spread to my intestines when we found it.
I just finished chemo (CHOP & Rituxan) and have some MRIs next week and a trip to the doc on Thurs. There may be radiation involved, I'm not sure. I'll find out Thurs.
I need info from NHL survivors who have been in remission for a goodly amount of time. What did you do to stay in remission? Exercise? Camp? Eat tofu?
I don't know what I'm supposed to do next. Before I was diagnosed, I was pretty healthy, if overweight. I rarely got sick. I never took more than one sick-day a year. I ate fruits and vegetables and exercised and took antioxidant vitamins and drank green tea and had parents in their 80's. I thought I was free and clear.
Should I change how I was living or go back to it? I think I should change, because I obviously was doing SOMETHING wrong, wasn't I?
Or am I trying to control my life too much?
