I was diagnosed with Large B Cell NHL in 11/02. The tumor (thymus) was removed and the margins were good. The rest of the diagnosis showed no blood or bone marrow involvement. I had CHOP, Rituxen, and 20 radiation treatments.
The problem for me right now is that about the time my next doctor visit (every 3-4 months) comes along, I seem to get mentally down. Last night I came down with a severe case of the shakes, but no fever.
Has anyone else gone through this mind game? I'm pretty positive, but when I came down with the shakes I just new I was having a relapse.
My doctor said that in most cases of large B cell, if there is going to be recurrence it happens within the first 2 years. Well here I am coming up on 2 years and I seem to be causing myself all this mental anquish. I didn't feel this bad while I was going through treatment.
I see my oncologist in 10 days. This is crazy.
