Nh Lymphoma 8 Mos After Kidney TxplantIt was due to the immunosuppressant meds. I had multiple lesions in my small intestine and my stupid doctor refused to believe I was in pain. I had to tell him what tests to perform and to check me into the hospital. When I checked in, he asked me if I was depressed. i "fired' him and got another doc who ordered a PET and endo colonoscopy. That's how they saw the lesions. Did RCHP therapy and after 2, the lesions were gone. Had 4 more sessions after that. I went to chemo alone. Sometimes, my mom picked me up after work. I was 30. It was so annoying to see people there being fed by their husbands and wives or kids. I studied for my PhD qualifying exams while there and ignored them. I went to work in the weeks between chemo sessions. I have felt very alone since. I have a great job, I am going on leave to finish my dissertation. I live abroad for my job and just got a promotion, but that loneliness that started on chemo hasn't left.
