What is it like to live with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma?

Some symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma may not cause you any pain or impact your daily life. However, other symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma can interfere with your daily activities. These symptoms include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Chest pain
  • Coughing
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Night sweats that interfere with your sleep

Once your condition is diagnosed, your doctors will recommend a treatment plan. Sometimes, that treatment plan only includes regular doctor’s appointments to monitor your cancer.

However, if your non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is aggressive or causing symptoms, then your doctor may recommend chemotherapy, radiation, bone marrow transplant, other medications, or participation in clinical trials.

Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Symptoms and Treatment May Interfere With Your Life

While the treatment may be necessary to save your life, it can also make your life temporarily difficult. In addition to the cancer symptoms listed above, you may also deal with the unpleasant side effects of cancer treatment, such as:

  • Nausea
  • Hair loss
  • Heart damage
  • Lung damage
  • Fertility problems
  • Development of other cancers
  • Fatigue
  • Stroke
  • Thyroid issues
  • Increased risk of infection

Both your cancer symptoms and cancer treatment side-effects can cause you to miss out on family events, things you enjoy, and work.

Looking to the Future After a Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Diagnosis

Part of looking forward includes looking backward at the likely cause of your non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

One possible cause of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is Roundup® exposure. The World Health Organization has found glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, to be a probable carcinogenic. Other glyphosate studies and warnings have come to similar conclusions.

So far, thousands of lawsuits have been filed against Monsanto, the maker of Roundup, alleging that Roundup caused non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. If you have been exposed to Roundup at home or work, then you need to know your rights. You may have the right to significant compensation for the impact that non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma has had and will likely continue to have on your life.
