After 3 years W&W I've just been told that I'll need treatment in the next year or so. (So far I have had no symptoms other than lymph node swellings and a rising blood count - no fatigue or night sweats) I know that everyone's experience with FCR is different but one thing that seems clear is that after FCR the immune system is less strong certainly for the short term and often for the long term. My wife is understandably very worried. She fears that after my treatment I'll not be able to hold down my job due to the weakness in my immune system and that our inability to keep up with the mortgage payments will lead to us losing our home. She is panicky and I'm just wondering if any of you could share your experiences of life after FCR - good and bad - so that we can get a balanced view of the future. My attitude is to live life now for all it's worth and not try to make predictions, but at this moment we're both feeling the pressure.
