I am seeking some more advice from you good people regarding my SLL. On my first visit to hospital 3 weeks ago I was diagnosed with SLL following a biopsy on my lymph nodes under my arm. I then had a CT scan , and on my second visit (2weeks after my initial diagnosis), I was told that after assessing my scan , I would need to start FCR chemo this Wednesday, due to big swellings that showed up in my pelvis, which I think must be at the upper end of what they like the size of the lymph nodes to be . All very sudden I know, and the worse thing has been trying to get all the relevant information and processing it all in such a short space of time. I am, as I know I have stated before, male, 42 , and physically fit. What sort of questions do I need to ask ,before my treatment starts, regarding the need for FCR so suddenly. I was told originally that this was a long term condition, yet before I have had time to understand the condition itself and get my head around the fact that I have got the "C" word, I am told that I need treatment. Does anyone out their know any contacts for advice on SLL specifically.
Many thanks to you and best wishes to everyone and your loved ones.
