Hi I am new to this and still feel new to diagnosis. I was diagnosed in June after being sick for the month of May. I had a weird rash on my arms and what I thought was an upper respiratory infection. My kids have their own Dr and when I get sick I just went to a Dr's Care.After hearing a lady brag about this Dr. I decided to go to him. He couldn't diagnose what the rash was but did a EKG first off actually his nurse did because he requires it for all his patients. He gave me antibiotics for the upper resp. infection. Then the tests began. A CT scan showed a mass in center of my chest which he said was ok and he would cure me. I just kept getting sicker and sicker and losing weight had a strange feeling in my esophagus like something was stuck there. Shortness of breath as well It would take everything I had to get up shower to go to DR. as well as household chores and with 2 young children it was frustrating. After the second or third round of antibiotics I went back to see DR and was sent to have MRI and ended up in hospital for a few days where the mass was formally called cancer and Lymphoma and was referred to an oncologist. In July was back in Hospital for a week and started first chemo of CHOP_R.Tolerated it very well. I don't know all these classifications of the disease to know exactly what i do have. It is confusing. Thank you for any input you may have. Sorry so long winded.
