Hi, I have just been diagnosed with Grade 1 Follicular Lymphoma...that is all it says on lab reports following biopsy. I have been reading alot on the net and, though so many people are telling me it is one of the better cancers to get (!!), I am also reading that it is hard to cure and tends to recur. I would really appreciate some encouragement right now. I am feeling fine apart from post surgery effects.(the lymph nodes are in my mesentery). I have no night sweats, fevers and so on, though I do have a red patch on my arm. My blood works are good.My husband was dx Stage 111C rectal cancer three years ago and is doing well, but this is a blow for him and I am afraid it might set him back. I will be seeing the oncologist next week to see what treatment he has in mind.
