Hello. I am a member who came on here awhile ago. I have had two clean PET scans, one in December of 2012 and one in July of 2013. My next
scan will be in January. I am in remission for Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma Diffuse B Cell. My last chemotherapy of RCHOP was October, 2012.
I have a question to put out there. I had been feeling very well, strong, and energetic until about six weeks ago. I still have my energy but I started
getting minor stomach cramping with indigestion problems and now I have this about every other day. The stomach problems.
I went to my primary doctor and she authorized a CAT scan and blood work. The CAT scan came back fine and so did the blood work but I continue with
these symptoms. She is continuing to monitor me. I made an appointment with my oncologist just to follow up and I found that he had moved his office
with no notification to us. It is not far from his other office but I felt it lacked professionalism. He was wonderful during my treatment and I can't see
myself with another specialist at this time but this made me wonder how important are patients? I feel anything unusual that happens after this disease
should be taken care of and it is very worrying. Perhaps one of the real side effects of this is the mental part. Thank you for listening. I have been feeling
quite insecure and perhaps I was taking for granted that I was feeling really good for so long. This place was always somewhere to come with people that would
understand when others don't.
