DLBCL - Back pain

4 Apr 2022 12:50


I haven't posted on here before so hello to fellow Lymphoma patients.  I was diagnosed at the beginning of the year with DLBCL and have had 4 rounds of R-CHOP therapy so far.  I am struggling with the most excrutiating back pain and wondered whether anyone has suffered similar?  I cannot seem to get any pain meds from the hospital but find that nothing over the counter touches the pain.  Any ideas??

Thank you

Hi Claire-B and welcome to the forum.

I'm really sorry about the back pain you're contending with, it sounds very painful. Hopefully some of our members will get back to you soon but I can see our nurses have replied to your other post and you can have a look at what they said just here.

I hope their advice, as well as the support and thoughts from our community, will help and you're able to get this under control soon.

Good luck with the rest of your treatment Claire-B. We'll be thinking of you and have our fingers crossed you don't experience any more troublesome side effects.

Kind regards,

Steph, Cancer Chat Moderator
