Hello everyone, 

How are you today? emoticon cute

I thought I would create this discussion so we can all get to know one another better!

So, what is your lymphoma diagnosis story? Do you have Hodgkin's or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma? When and how were you diagnosed? What symptoms were you having that let you know something was wrong? What treatments have you undergone? How are you doing today? 

Feel free to share your story with us here!

And if you haven't seen it already, @Driggs09‍ just recently shared his story with us in a testimonial! You can read it here: Hodgkin's Lymphoma: Staying Active and Positive Through Treatment

Take care,

@Courtney_J Hi, I was diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) about a year ago. I was having really bad night sweats and some pressure in my chest, and then I noticed a lump in my armpit. I went through about a million tests it felt like and they found it had spread. I went through a few rounds of R-CHOP (a lovely mix of chemo drugs) and today I'm in remission!

I was diagnosed with non-hodgkin's follicular lymphoma in March this year, completely by accident, after a referral for stomach in January.

I don't really have symptoms, so it was a total shock when they told me that they saw enlarged lymph nodes on the CT scan and that I needed an urgent biopsy. The biopsy came back with stage 3A NHFL. I was and still shocked. In the day-to-day I don't really have any symptoms at all other than feeling more tired that usual and night sweats. I'm not in treatment because it's a slow-growing cancer so we're just watching to see how/if it develops.
