When does treatment begin
I was diagnosed with Follicular Lymphoma six months ago. I had surgery in the biopsy process and had my left parotid gland removed. It had a grade 2 mass in it. I am seeing two oncologists, one locally and one at MD Anderson in Houston. I have lots of "spots" and lymph nodes that are activated, on my liver, right lung, messenteric lining, spleen, right kidney, groin and now my right thigh. I have night sweats and pain in different places as nodes are activated and then recede. The biggest tumor is just under 2cm in my abdomen. I suffer from chronic fatigue. I have been told that I do not qualify for any treatment presently and that I won't until one of the masses becomes greater than 3 cm. I was just told the cancer appears to have reappeared in the left parotid bed. Do other people have the experience of being told to go live your life and just wait for treatment with this disease?
