Hi I'm new to the site and not sure what to say I'm 42 years old and have been told I have non Hodgkin's lymphoma. Still waiting for ct results although it has been confirmed to be in my bone marrow and low grade. I've now been sent to see the respiratory team next week off the back of my ct but not told what they want and just that it's urgent. My consultant told me I'm on watch and wait for now but I'm worried that might change next week from this new appt.  Finding all this a bit hard at the moment and very emotional  but it's encouraging to see  how everyone else is managin from their posts on here.

Hi there and welcome to our little chat place...

Lots of us here, lots of different diagnosis and treatment but all with one thing in common .. trying to kick cancers ass...  and it is really emotional in those early days .. looking back l think it's the scariest part of the whole journey... 

But your not alone .. it's like being on the scariest rollercoaster ride and not knowing how or when we can get off .. but look around wer all on that same ride ..  Chrissie xx

Thanks for your welcome Chrissie I agree yes it's like a rollercoaster and everytime I think it's going on a smoother ride it speeds back up and does another loop.
