Hello to all,

I have joined Maggies at the end of my first year following diagnosis and hope I will be able to link up with others suffering with my particular condition or at least some other Low Grade Lymphoma patients.

It has been a very long and traumaic year but I now feel that I have managed to master the situation sufficiently to pass on my knowledge and support to others if they would find it helpful.

The trouble with lymphomas is there are so many of them and the diagnosis can be very long and drawn out. I initially noticed a problem in June 2016 and did not get my currentl diagnosis until a year later. This may even change again but not until I have grown more material to biopsey!

I will save the full details until a later blog just wanted to say hello for now
