I was wondering if anyone else has experienced odd symptoms. I feel pretty good except I am noticing: 1. My body feels like there are bugs crawling inside my chest/stomach area, not sure if this is from scar tissue or a chemo effect. 2. Besides dry mouth I have noticed my face/lips have begun to feel numb (I live in Florida so its not from the cold). Let me know. Thanks

  • Hi again , 3-4 months out from treatments like R-CHOP is no time at all. Your body has been put through a lot and for some the recovery can be longer then you would hope or like. 

    Ruling out any infections is important so do make sure you get a full check over including full bloods. Pain from scar tissue for some can last some time, for me, 7 years on I still have to deal with it more so during colder months when I am less active outside...... But I live in Scotland Wink

    Tingly lips could be down to the left over effects of the chemo....... I still was dealing with hand issues 12 months after treatment ended.

    I have come to realise that any small health issue tends to get magnified, more if we had never been through treatment.... I always work on the thought that if my medical team are happy them I am delighted.

    Stay safe in these crazy time.
