I've had NHL twice the first time my doctors said I wouldn't make it because the tumor encompassed my heart and had went around my windpipe cutting off most of my oxygen intake. As we can I did make it and after five years I was ok and in remission, then about 3 years after that the cancer came back and I barely made it through the chemo and radiation treatments. I've been in remission from the second bought with NHL for five plus years now, but this time the chemo and radiation treatments took everything out of me and I have many side effects that I now have to deal with-I spend more time at my five different doctors offices than I do at home anymore. If anyone needs to talk I'm here and would like to help in anyway that I can and I'd also like to be able to talk to someone if I can from time to time too.View Thread
