My dad has just been dx and he has not told me yet what stage or varity he has his bladder has a large stone in it which they will be removing and they have biopsied his lymphnodes, he said they are getting a second opinon before they stage,

I need for him to ok, You see i also have cancer, I am stage 4 rectal cancer ( me not going to make it, I have excepted this, some maybe years from now i will die from my cancer).

I am not prepared to loose my dad or to see him sick, I maybe selffish but i need him well.

    You say your dad has a bladder tumor. Are you sure he has lymphoma? Do you have any idea of what type of lymphoma he has. I know you said it has not been staged as of yet, but they should have said what type in his lymph nodes. I have nhl myself and maybe I can guide you a little bit. John

    my mistake
    my mistake the mass in the bladdder is a stone, and from what i know they have not staged the lymphoma yet but that is what he has.

    I write more when i find out more.

    LYMPHOMA AND SCARED
    Winnie, Please be assured lymphoma is NOT a death sentence by any means. It is a chronic desease that can be treated with a variety of modern treatments. If not treated it then becomes deadly. Please let us know when you find out the diagnosis. Someone here will have the same thing and can be a great help to you. I know it sounds impossible, but try not to worry yourself to much. I am a good one to say this because I was a bundle of nerves myself. It still stays on my mind and always will. John
