I was diagnosed on Friday with Lymphoma. My doctors expected it to be squamous cell carcinoma as I drink and smoke. To my shock it was Lymphoma again. I first had it 14 years ago and received R CHOP. This was completely successful (until, of course, it wasn’t). With my limited understanding I find it difficult to believe that this refractory as the time period is too long. However, I can’t really find anything on the internet that discusses this. I’ve found info on Follicular B cell lymphoma but I’m pretty sure mine is DLBC. I was wondering if anyone out there has any similar experiences or could some advice.
As you can imagine there is so much I want to know: not least prognosis!
