Good morning @Ruby205 and welcome to the group. Wow, what a time to be diagnosed and going through treatment. How are you? I to have follicular lymphoma, but received radiotherapy 4 years ago, not chemotherapy. For the life of me, I can’t remember how many times I saw my consultant. However, I think, like you, I would be questioning it. I wonder, have you got a clinical nurse specialist you can contact? Mine was always so good at answering any questions I had and it might help to put your mind at rest.

Hi @Ruby205, a warm welcome to our forum, it must have been so lonely and isolating being diagnosed during Covid times. If there are two things that I have learnt is that I am entitled to question anything I am anxious about and there is nothing that is ‘normal’ at the moment.
