I've been dealing with low grade B cell lymphoma since 2016, treatment was Gazyva. It came back in about 6 months and I've been on w&w since my blood numbers have been okay. Symptoms started ramping up over the summer and I was going to do treatments but my blood numbers were pretty much in the normal range so we held off.
Had a PET scan and it showed some unusual signs that I may have transformed.. Got the bad news today, I have and they want to start me on R-Chop on Monday. In addition they're suggesting that I do a spinal tap to get the chemo into the brain and spine. I have fluid around my lung that has lymphoma in it.
So I've gone from watch and wait to this, I'm petrified as this was all just thrown at me today Friday, and they want me to start Monday. What advice can anyone give me to handle this turn of events.
Thanks so much!
