Have you been diagnosed? Itching is one of the symptoms of lymphoma. It is an itching that becomes overwhelming and a lot of times happens during the night.
Do you have any other symptoms? lymph node enlargement, fatigue, night sweats, fever?
yes, I've been on chemo (CHOPS) already. It's just recent the itching gotten so bad I want to scream. I hope this does not mean It's getting worse. I'm going to my oncologist 5/22 I need to tell him. My chemo has been delayed due to my med port got infected and I ended up in the hospital. Thanks for your response
I hope that the oncologist can figure this out. I do know that there are drugs out there that your doctor can prescribe to you for the intense itching. I am curious, is the itching during sleep or is it throughout the day?
all the time. I ask the Dr today and he said it could be many thing causing it. I'm going to be checked for being diabetic. also I was on vancomycin for an infection of my med port. He also gave me things for the itching.
