Hi all!

i have been recently been diagnosed with low grade non hodgins lymphoma,I have a mass in my abdomen and we are in discussions about starting radiotherapy.

My main concern is the radiologist seems to be very concerned that the side effects will be worse than normal because of the location of the mass.Its right in the middle of my abdomen behind my stomach.She has said that a lot of  my bowel and both kidneys will be effected quite badly.

Just looking for advice really on coping mechanisms and some realistic answers on how hard it will be so I am mentally prepared as much as possible.

thank you in advance
