Biopsy Results

Had my Biopsy last Monday, was sent home Monday night only to be called in Tuesday morning. Biopsy showed swelling inside the transplant so I was given 3 days of iv methlyprednisolone 500mg and a ct scan was ordered. I came home Friday night feeling no better. Well today I was told I have lymphoma, don't know which type yet but fingers crossed its curable........ Also this is causing transplant failure, it never rains but it pours.

  • Claire, I am so sorry, I really hope this is not the end of your transplant, I hope your keeping your chin up and hoping and praying it all turns out ok, the very best of luck xx

  • So sorry to hear your bad news, hopefully they caught your illness early. Not good news you are loosing your transplant. Keep your chin up. All the best to you, I'll say a wee prayer for you.

  • What devastating news, Claire. But don't give up, remember "where there is a will, there is a way." What about making a list of things you would like to do. What Xmas panto will you see? Have you booked to see the new Bond movie? Buy Adele's great theme song! Thanksgivingtime will you make some friends a meal, or get them to help you have your own Thanksgiving party? You ain't dead yet girl, so live!

  • Hi Claire, just wanted to encourage you at this difficult time. My daughter is now 6 years post transplant and she too was diagnosed with post transplant Lymphoma. She was at risk of losing her transplant but her treatment was sucessful and her transplant has remained fairly stable since. I hope your transplant is stabilised soon and you make a good recovery.

  • Thankyou so very much kidd44, my head is all over the place at the moment but you've given me some hope. Xx

  • Glad it helped a little, I remember the feelings well. Will be thinking of you.

  • now a days there are ;ots of rugs that can cure your problem do not worry it is virus iinduced nd curable
