My boyfriend S was diagnosed last week with hairy cell leukemia and just finished his last day of chemotherapy Friday (8/15/08). Wondering if you can give any insight on what he might expect? He's having the bouts of feeling ick and he's got the occasional fever...anything you can offer me by way of how I should help him without smothering him would be greatly appreciated. I am a three year cancer survivor myself but realize that everyone deals with their cancer differently and that every cancer is different.

Thanks in advance for any assistance or light you can shed on this.

Dear Thistimeforsteve,

The easiest way to locate other CSN members with similar experiences is to type keywords (such as "hairy cell leukemia," "caregiving leukemia," "Leukemia side effects," etc.) on the search bar at the top of the home page. You can refine your search by clicking on the “Advance search” link listed underneath the search field. The major categories of content on CSN are blogs, discussion boards, “About Me” pages, etc. For example, if you are looking for a specific resource on the Resource Library, you can limit your search to resources only by clicking on the "resource" and "advanced search" button at the bottom of the "advanced search" box. Remember that you must be logged on if you want to post anything on a discussion boards, view personal pages, use the chat room, etc.

Cordially,
Your CSN Staff
