I have had really bad back pain since they stopped my maintenance treatment I have follicular lymphoma should I be worried
Hi Gary c
Thanks for getting in touch with us.
It’s natural to worry about any new symptoms that you’re having, especially now that your maintenance treatment has stopped. You wouldn’t be human if you didn’t worry about your cancer coming back(relapsing).
As nurses on this type of platform we can’t diagnose the reasons why you’re having really bad back pain. We always advice that if anyone has new, persistent or worsening symptoms that it’s important that they contact their hospital team to let them know. This is so that you can be properly assessed, and your pain managed.
Best wishes and take care.
Ellen- Cancer Information Nurse Specialist.
