Im a 26 y/o female, presented with raised lymph glands on left side of my neck in Jan 2019. Was fast tracked and had various tests and was told not to worry.
i then went back to consultant as was more symptomatic and after speaking to my GP they suggested I contact the consultant. He recommended I have them removed and surgery was set for 1 month later. Then things got scary! I started presenting with random bruising and went to my GP and she noticed the nodes had changed. She said that she was concerned and would contact my consultant and send me for a chest X-ray. The chest X-ray confirmed my chest nodes were swollen and blood tests showed my CRP was high.
my consultant moved my surgery forward and on Monday I had ‘2 large clusters’ of lymph nodes removed.
My question is, what happens now? Because I’m waiting for the biopsy, I have an urgent referral to haematology and I’m waiting on a CT scan. But I don’t really know what the process is? The GP and consultant appear to think it’s lymphoma from all my tests and the consultant said, if it is, it’s highly curable.
Ive got this horrible big swollen cut in my neck as a reminder of what’s about to come, but I don’t really know in what order this is all going to happen, only that I’ll get the biopsy results in 1/2 weeks?
could someone shed some light on how the process works? I’ve been so worried about it all, I’m not eating and I hate the waiting!
