Lyphoma

Dh went for a CAT scan on Monday because he may need a hip replacement. The orthopedist called on Wed. and said he needs to go to his primary Dr. and get tests done because they are concerned it might be lyphoma.We were prepared to hear he needed his hip replaced But not this!!!!!! He got blood work done yesterday and now we just wait.Sorry to bring this here but you are all so easy to talk to I lost my mom when I was 10 and my mind is going crazy thinking about the bad.We have a 10 and 7 year old.

Oh no! You are in my thoughts that this is all "nothing." In the meantime, until the test results come back it might help to know that regardless, there is nothing you can do about the good or the bad - you'll just deal. Try and remind yourself not to borrow trouble.

Also, you may want to talk to your primary about anti anxiety medication.

All the best.

Another Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor. Before your mind carries you too far into despair; while it is not the road any of us would choose...the good news is, many of us have been there And are here to assure others just facing the disease.

Another Hodgkins Lymphoma survivor here. November was my 5 year mark.

*hugs* My thoughts are with you. As the pp mentioned, I think the best mindset you can get into for yourselves is to just understand that you can't control the outcome of the tests, just know that you'll do whatever you need to going forward to beat it.

And while every case is different, I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.

Prayers from another Long Islander.

I am sure the wait is gong to be hard over the week end.

Try to take your mind off things and enjoy your family and the snow.

There are lots of great hospitals here to get good care if need be. I go to Stony Brook for my cancer care. I dont have lymphoma though they thought I did at one time.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Wishing you all the best. Keep us updated when you can. Hang in there! One day at a time!

My thoughts and prayers are with you OP. My brother in law is five years in remission of lymphoma. It was a tough battle, but he made it through. Stay strong.

So sorry you are still waiting. I am sure its frustrating and nerve wracking. You want and need answers. Have they told you what the delay is?

Hang in there. Sending you prayers and good thoughts for all the best.

My husband is a survivor of Hodgkins Lymphoma.(originally diagnosed in 1992) For me I think the worst part was waiting for results. Once we had results and knew what he was dealing with it got easier. I can't promise you a smooth road, but you can get through it!
It has been almost 6 years since the doctor said to me "say goodbye, there is nothing else we can do for your husband." Now we are planning a family Disney trip in August and he will be there!!!!!

As far as how hard the treatments are, that depends. There were times when DH was on so many steroids that he couldn't sit still. He cleaned all my cabinets, the pantry and everything else he could find.

Good luck to you and your DH, I hope the news is good. As others have said, let me know if you have any more questions.

My Mom had Lymphoma and this was her with the steroids as well. I stayed with her a few times on weekends during the process and she went from her norm of falling asleep at 8 pm and me needing to be quiet so I didn't disturb her to much to Still awake and going strong at 1 am and me begging to go to sleep. (I had a 2 year old at the time!) She's been cancer free for years now and her whole ordeal was about six months from diagnosis to the last follow up appointment. Now she goes once a year, I think, for a check up with them.
