Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma - CBD Oil?

Last reply: 8 months ago
Hi, My father has just been diagnosed with Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma. Just want to speak with anyone with similar diagnosis. He is 69 years old and it seems to be in one node at the moment. Starting chemo next week. Just trying to reach out and see if anyone is in the same boat. Also wondering about the use of CBD oil in conjunction with CHOP chemotherapy, if anyone uses CBD oil or how have they found it? Thank you.

my father in law

Last reply: 9 months ago
My father in law is currently in a nursing home which is under lockdown. He has advanced non hodkins and appears to be getting very breathless which is a new thing. When we speak to him he is v breathless and has had a cough. We are waiting to speak to a nurse later about his O2 levels. We are obviously very concerned now as the community palliative team have not seen him since Nov and they cannot visit him. Has anyone got any suggestions as to what we can do? thanks.

Lymphoma symptoms?

Last reply: 1 year ago
Hi, the last couple of months I’ve had a lump below my left breast over my lower rib. It’s not painful but I do have some discomfort on that side. Also experiencing mild nausea especially when I eat plus periodic sweats and itchy feet, especially at night. I know some of these could be symptoms of lymphoma but km wondering would that be a normal location for it to be? Do you think it warrants a doctor visit? I don’t want to go along being dranatic but this thing is not going away plus I’m struggling a lot with fatigue. I keep Blaming that that on my underactive thyroid but I’m not sure that’s it now. Just wondering others thoughts? Thanks in advance

follicular non Hodgkin's lymphoma

Last reply: 2 years ago
Hello, 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 . 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, Justy.
