Hi Joyce. I haven't checked in with the forum for a long time.

I've been on ibrutinib since mid-2018, and am continuing to do well. My bloodwork is pretty good, and I haven't had much in the way of side effects. No complaints until now.

Hope all is well with you and your husband!

Hi, I'm new and my 30 year old son is waiting for core needle biopsy results taken on Dec 23 for enlarged lymph node in the armpit. The enlarged node was found early April this year and just smaller than a golf ball, at which point he had an ultrasound - at that time he had no "B" symptoms. In September the node had grown a bit maybe just larger than a golf
ball, however since then it has doubled in size. It seems now as well that he may be experiencing some of the "B" symptoms - night sweats, itch, fever, - he works in construction and just thinks these things are do to working hard. When the radiologist was performing biopsy he indicated that were also 2 more visible lymph nodes of a good size behind the largest one. My question is can "B" symptoms just all of sudden start when they weren't there before? We are expecting some sort of result Tuesday/Wednesday this week. Any info would be greatly appreciated by this worried momma bear.
Thanks for reaching out! I didn’t see the notification until just now.

I don’t think there is much to do at this point but to go there and drink the poison. I just ended a three day fast which did wonders for my anxiety and focus. It worked so well that I’m going to write a separate thread about it at some point. If you feel like your fears are stopping you from living well, I would suggest to give it a try yourself. It won’t cure any possible relapse but any tool that might make you happier in the meantime is worth trying.

I’m at the gym now, last arm day before I have to stop exercise two days before PET.

Take care of yourself!
Man I'm sorry, try to be strong. You were always there to put me in peace with my insecurities, so now I'll try to do the same although, most probably, we are in the same boat.

If you like to talk in facebook or whatsup I'm here.

For me, when I got diagnosed, nothing really helped, so can't give any useful advise from personal experience. But hey, keep focusing on some physical activity.

Hang in there man.
