I got the results of the biopsies. Thyroid is ok but ............I do have Follicular Lymphoma. I have to call the oncologist tomorrow and make an appointment, then schedule a PET scan for next week. My doc also recommended a second opinion with a "lymphoma specialist downtown". I'll have to find out which place would be best, Northwestern, U. of C., Rush, Loyola, etc. and get an appt. there, too. Treatment depends on the stage. Depending on the stage and progression, the prognosis is from 1 to 20 years. I'm personally hoping for the latter.

I bet you do feel like you have been hit by a truck Jan. Sounds like you are going to need lots of prayers and you know I will being doing just that. Getting a second opinion from the lymphoma specialist is a good idea. I am betting on the latter for you Jan. Know that you have lots of people that love you and will be helping you through this time.
Getting it started means the sooner you can start to get well.
Had cancer a couple of time and beat it twice.
Take special care my friend.
