I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I want to share a personal story with you that will be helpful to know and kearn from.
Last year my friend Robert was diagnosed with lymphoma, and after his first full set of chemo, he came down with a secondary cancer in his spine, plus a variety of miscellaneous health issues as a result of the treatments. What's interesting is that his doctors never once informed him that lymphoma patients are 14 times more likely to develop leukemia, and 6 times more likely to develop cancers of the bones, joints, and soft tissues than those patients who did not undergo chemotherapy. This information is published in the National Cancer Institute Journal, yet the majority of Oncologists do not warn patients of this. (*I'm including the direct quote from the NCI Journal at the end of this email for reference.)
Unfortunately, we didn't learn this until after he developed a secondary cancer.
I don't know what method of treatment you're using, but I want to share this with you so you can make the best decision possible with treatment.
I pray this info is helpful. Many blessings to you!
* Quote from NCI Journal
"A study of over 10,000 patients shows clearly that chemo’s supposedly strong track record with Hodgkin’s disease (Lymphoma) is actually a lie. Patients who underwent chemo were 14 times more likely to develop leukemia and 6 times more likely to develop cancers of the bones, joints, and soft tissues than those patients who did not undergo chemotherapy (NCI Journal 87:10).”—John Diamond, M.D.
