stage 4 follicular lymphoma

My Dr. told me that stage 4 NHL was treatable. Are you saying it is fatal?

Re: how long we can live with stage 4 follicular lymphoma

Yes. That's what doctors tell you at first so you don't panic. It IS treatable but not curable. You can treat it for a while but you cannot cure it. It sucks.
