I was diagnosed with a non-Hodgkin lymphoma nearly 2 years ago and have been on 'watch and wait' since then.I have found the Consultants very patient and clear in their explanations at appointments.
Earlier this year test results indicated that there might be a problem with my kidneys and I was really pleased with how quickly scans etc were organised.
Although I haven't started treatment for the cancer as yet, I do from time to time have questions and every time I have e-mailed them, the two Clinical Nurse Specialists have, without fail, got straight back to me with an answer and they always stress that patients can contact them with any question or concern they may have. Knowing that there is this level of support is very reassuring.
I have also attended several of the Lymphoma Support Group sessions at the Maggie's Centre and have enjoyed some very interesting talks organised by the Clinical Nurse Specialists. The sessions are relaxed and informative and I feel that this is a good way to meet other patients and share experiences.
I would say how bad car parking is but everyone already knows this!
