Hi everyone, i’m new here. I received a partial diagnosis of stage 4 lymphoma five days ago. I’m now waiting for full body scan to find the origin of my blood cancer, then a biopsy to narrow down which type of lymphoma I have. The consultant has said it is likely to be the end of July before we have all the answers and can start treatment.
I am feeling overwhelmed and scared. I went cold when they told me it was stage 4. But then the consultant followed it up by saying it should be treatable. I’m confused.
Any advice on how to get through the next few weeks of waiting would be greatly appreciated.
