low back pain with NHL

Hi, I'm new to the group and am wondering if anyone else has experienced debilitating low back pain with NHL. My primary sites have been on my aorta and after treatment I had a 21 month remission, then it appeared in my paratoid gland. Again I underwent treatment and after a 6 month remission I again got it in the other side of my face in the paratoid duct. I am currently in remission but am experiencing terrible back pain which has been on-going for at least a year. It is very difficult to walk or stand and at times I am unable to lay in bed and sleep most of the night in my recliner. Would love to hear from others with similar situations. BTW I don't tolorate most of the pain meds I have tried so have given up on them altogether and do get some relief from a TENS unit.

Looking forward to being a part of this group. Joan63MA

    I'm new too! I also didn't tolerate the pain meds they gave me at first (they all seem to make me vomit). Finally, they gave me a Duragesic patch. Have you tried this? It sure worked for me. I still have a little breakthrough pain, but nothing like I had before.
