follicular non Hodgkin's lymphoma

Last reply: 2 years ago

I'm new here and wanted to say hi.
I got diagnosed with follicular non hodgkins lymphoma in September 2013. I'm a 34year old female. The diagnosis felt like a slap on my face Image removed. .
I'm worried of course.
I have so many questions (Google is not helpful. It scares me)
Is there anybody else here with the same cancer who would like to talk?
Take care,

Hi guys
I have only just joined was doagnosed with NHL in September 2017, still finding it hard to cope and the thoughts of the watch & wait is very scary. Im undergoing immunotherapy at the moment. I sometimes feel like my consultant doesnt understand like when i tell him about the pain in my abdomen he never seems too concerned or gets this look of confusion and it sometimes feels like he maybe thinking im making it up. Am i going crazy or has anyone rlse experienced this?
