Today the onocologist begins.
All of my stuff has gotten here from MD Anderson and I will find out what they are going to do to me here for treatment. Sounded gruesome when they spoke of it in Houston. I am battling a rotten bladder infection on top of it all. I feel like throwing in the towel. I am so sick already. I am not going to cry when I get there but it makes me wonder if the treatment kills you too after seeing the post on Dad Passed Away. Soooooooo sorry. I need encouragement. All I feel is fear! Help. cbpgill26
I hope you don't mind me bringing your post to the top of discussion, but I was worried it might not get knowticed as well in the other thred. Today is a very scary day for you and I felt you need all of the comfort and feedback we can muster up. Please Carol...try to stay calm and not get too far ahead in your thoughts. There are so many variables to take into account with the various sub-types of Lymphoma. I've been here for almost 2 years now and so far nobody in our group has died from treatment. Age, health and how aggresive the cancer type is, has alot to do with the outcome of treatment. One size doesn't fit all and each one of us is unique. I know how scary this is for you, but I'm sure you are going to be ok and get through this. Let us know what your treatment consists of once you find out, and we will all get back to you with what we know. It's going to be ok. My prayers are with you...Much love...Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10)
