I have been in remission from NHL since Nov. 2003.Things seem ok but the emotional ups and downs are tricky. I have had 3 CAT Scans since the last treatment, so far everything looks good. Lately, depression and loss of appetite have started along with some symptoms that may accompany NHL. I'm due for another scan next month so hopefully and prayfully everything will be fine. I knew about side affects after Chemo but did not expect so many emotions. I had all these emotions during Chemo also, but nurses and doctors said it was normal. Anyway, it makes me feel very isolated; my husband has been very understanding but of course he can't grasp (and I don't expect him to) the full extent of the emotional effects. Can anyone chat with me who has had similar experiences?
