Thanks for getting in touch. It’s great to hear that your daughter has been in remission for 2.5 years.
It’s difficult for us on this type of platform to say what could be causing your daughter’s UTIs.
The immune system should recover over time after treatment for lymphoma, although some people do have problems with immunity for a year or two after treatment.
UTIs are common, but we’d recommend your daughter gets in touch with her haematology team if she’s still being followed up, or her GP. Not because we think anything sinister is going on, but because they’d want to know about any new symptoms or problems.
I hope this is helpful. Please don’t hesitate to get back in touch if you have further questions. Or if you’d prefer to talk things through with one of the nurses, we’re here 7 days a week, from 8am till 8pm.

Thanks for getting back in touch. I’m glad you found Carole’s reply helpful. It’s good to hear that your daughters check up went well last week.
It’s not unusual for young adults to want to take control of their own health especially after going through treatment for cancer. It sounds like you are doing an amazing job by supporting your daughter with this and encouraging her to seek support when necessary.
You know we’re here for you if you have any further concerns.
Kelly (Macmillan Information Nurse Specialist).
