I suffered from NHL high grade diffused B cell in 2010 at the age of 29 and have been in remission since. I was even discharged from my consultant in January this year which made me feel completely back to normality. About three weeks ago I found a large swelling under my left armpit and to be horror have been told today the biopsy has shown this is a return of NHL. My CT scan has shown no other areas which I guess is good news.
My previous treatment was four cycles of R-CHOP, intrathecal the following day and then 30 rounds of radiotherapy.
I honestly never expected this to return and now feel very anxious about having to go through a more intensive regime this time. I’m not meeting with my consultant until two weeks due to holidays, but my case is being discussed next week at the MDT meeting.
In a relapse, am I still able to be cured?
Any advice is gratefully appreciated.
