Hi my name is Theresa, I was diagnosed with low grade marginal Lymphoma almost 2 years ago,. At that time I had a mass on back for which I received radiation and rituxin infusion once every week for four weeks and a maintenance schedule of once every two months for a 2 year period. I was about 6 months in my maintenance when a noudle on my lung was discovered, a needle biopsy proved inconclusive,. That was one year ago, since then I have had numerous scans, bone marrow biopsy,. More needle biopsy all reporting suggestive of lymphoma, but not diagnostic. In the meantime the noudle sin my lungs are increased in numbers and size.and staring in my I developed a dry cough and shortness of breath.
It was decided to have lung surgery and obtain the lung tissue for biopsy.
The diagnosis was non noudle marginal zone lymphoma ( malt) . Treatment options were explored, and my doctor recommended a clinical trial , which I am scheduled to start this coming Monday,
I appreciate all the information that is shared and I hope I can give positive feedback on my clinical trial,
