I am a year diagnosed tomorrow and was in for my six monthly check up yesterday. I was hoping to hear "see you again in November". Other than bulky neck nodes, my bloods are normal and I have no B symptoms. I have had a few infections and suffer a little with fatigue but it's manageable. I have no idea as yet as to the genetic make up of my disease. My consultant is concerned about the bulky nodes and is bringing me in next week for a bone marrow and CAT scan. However, he thinks treatment is pending and spoke about FCR and also mentioned the new drugs. But, to be honest, I am devestated to think treatment might be on the cards as I was hoping for months, perhaps years, before that choice arrived at my door. I did mention that when the results are in I'll want a second opinion before treatment. I'm quite upset, fearful of being rushed into treatment. and would like the thoughts of this community as I find the support invaluable.
