i'm feeling soooo much better!!! doing exercise of several different types, and feeling stronger every day. my 3-month checkup with the onc is next month and my next PET scan is in june, but i feel confident that my lymphoma has gone away. better living through chemotherapy, indeed! i feel singularly fortunate in my support network, my medical care, and in the availability of post-tereatment programs in san francisco. my advice to anyone: if you have to get cancer, get lymphoma, and do it in san francisco!

    Thank you...

    Hi Liz,

     Your so sweet, and yes...I will take all the prayers I can get. I'm anxious to get the last infusion finished, but on the same hand, I'm anxious NOT to have any more treatment at all....does that make sense? I think the Rituxan has given me a false sense of security with feeling like as long as I'm getting it, I'm going to stay healthy and not relapse, but once I stop, the cancer will pop back up. I think once my scan is done and "God" willing all is good, I will feel more comfortable about everything. I think I've used Rituxan as my security blanket for the last 2 years...ha! Smile. Thanks for caring Liz....Love...Sue

    I understand

    Hi Sweet Sue,

    I understand what you're saying, I think we all go through those emotions. I haven't reached that point yet but I know it will come one day. Just like we always say, one day at a time and enjoy life at the moment! That's all any of us can do right! Take care lovely lady (((HUGS))) and stay positive. Everything will be ok!

    Sincerely,

    Liz

    You!

    V-

     

    Well you are just a burst of fresh energy!  Congratulations and good work!  You have embraced this "new normal" and just ran with it. (literally too!)

    i am like you in the belief that exercise is a huge component of our recovery and general well being.  Great medical care and support from family and friends does round it out.  :)

    I'm in PR and see my onc every three months- watchful waiting.  I'll take it.

    All the best to you!!

    Donna
