My mother has non-hodgkins lymphoma and had undergone CHOP two years ago. She had a relapse and went through DHAP. Doctors recommend her to do Autologous Stem Cell Transplant. The high dose treatment accompanying the SCT was quite tough and the whole transplant was completed in May'11. She was regaining strength until a month ago (July'11) and found out there was a relapse upon checking into hospital because of recurring fever and feeling weak.
Aside from blood tests, she had CT scan, and bone marrow test; the specialists confirmed that lymphoma is back because 'the blood is not behaving'. My questions is:
I'm trying to put on a strong face in the house but am feeling bummed out due to the recent events as well, please apologize for my venting.
