Diagnosed with Lymphoma

Hi there everyone, I have just been diagnosed with lymphoma although I don't know which one yet. As several of the symptoms are the same as fibro I wondered if anyone else has been diagnosed with it.

I have been diagnosed with fibro for 4 years but think I have had it for years and have been variously treated fror muscle strain spasm slipped disc etc. I am virtually bed bound with the d**n thing but hey ho thats the way it goes. I at least have a very good carere and we share a house together. He has a mental disability and I have a physical one so we care for each other I do the things he can't do and he does the things I can't so I am blessed

Anyway I hope that everyone is having a relatively pain free day and gentle hugs to all

I am sorry to hear this, I do hope that they find out what type and start your treatment soon. It is good that you have someone at home to support you. There is a very good web-site you may like to take a look at, They have a confidential phone line you can use to chat with them about your condition. I wish you well x

I have Lyphodema and Fibro to name but a few an I have triple bandaging on both of my legs it is done once a week and my legs have gone down brilliantly. So good luck hope you get treatment soon xgins


Hi mstiger, I realy hope you find out quickly what type it is so that treatment can begin as soon as possible. When did you get the diagnosis for the lymphoma?

Keep us posted about how you're doing.
