hello there i am new to this but i was reading throught the message boards i am from the uk and i am 22, my dad around 6 months ago was told he had small lymphatic lymphoma basically NHL but a different kind...its been hard finding out this and having to deal with what will each new day bring us all...i sometimes feel helpless for him as i am see him suffering but cant do so much, he has just started his first cycle of chemo, which was 7th of september 2006 he has to have it for 3 days every month...he has to form of chemo tablets...his on about 15 a day is that how it works for most people??? i think i know everything there is to now about this illness but i want it from a persons point of who is like myself knows some1 who some1 who has it themsevles. my main question is he gets a terrible pain in his spleen i know this is normal but it shoots him through to the back has any body else experienced this?? he said its almost like a trapped nerve in this back?? and his getting quite short of breath my 2nd question is NHL makes u have shortness of breath and a side effect of the chemo is and they tell u to report this side effect to the docter straight away how are u meant to know which is causing the problem??
sorry for such a long message MY GOD BE WITH ALL OF US AND MY HEARTH GOES OUT TO YOU ALL
