Hey everyone! I haven't written a journal in a while but it seems appropriate to let you all know: I had my first, and hopefully last, relapse scare.
The way things work with my cancer, is that after you are declared to be cancer free, you are most likely to relapse within two years. After two years, the risk falls dramatically. I am about two months in, and I started having night sweats - a classic B symptom of NHL - so I saw my doctor and she took blood tests. The blood tests came up fine - better than usual in fact - but she insisted on a PET scan "just to be safe".
As it turns out, it wasn't
just to be safe - They actually found a lump under my arm. Nobody told me until the results came back.
So, my doctor and my parents knew, but I did not - that there was a lump under my arm. They didn't want me to worry. Thankfully, the lump they found was just scar tissue from a previous tumour. So, not cancer. I was annoyed that they didn't tell me, but I suppose it was in my best interests, so I can't be too angry either way.
I am still cancer free, still in the clear.
It's all good!
