I was diagnosed with stage 4 Non Hodgkins follicular lymphoma early 2014, at first i though i had a kidney infection and was being treated accordingly by my GP, after several visits to A&E and stronger pain relief each time i managed to get a scan, they told me 6 to 8 weeks for the results to come back, i went home quite dispondant thinking 6 to 8 weeks of pethadine and still being in pain.
I had been at home about 10 mins when the phone rang and the hospital told me to go straight back in they had found a large mass on the left side of my stomach, i was admitted to the Georgina ward where i had a lymph gland removed from under my right arm and result came back as NHFL.
The next few days and several gallons of tears i had my first of 6 R-Chop chemotherapys, followed by 12 maintenace sessions, the last 4 being sub cut.
i finished my maintenance in october but the fatigue is awfull, i try to busy myself but get tired very quickly, my wife has been an Angel through all of this and i do get short tempered which i then feel quite remorseful as im not normally like that.
I am now in the process of trying to finish work through ill health as my job is quite physically and mentally draining
best wishes to you all and keep fighting,
