Would you have Malabsorption when you have Non-hodgkin's lymphoma?
Summary: Malabsorption is reported only by a few people with Non-hodgkin's lymphoma.
We study 3 people who have Malabsorption and Non-hodgkin's lymphoma from FDA and social media. Find out below who they are, other conditions they have and drugs they take.

Non-hodgkin's lymphoma (malignant (cancer) cells form in the lymph system) can be treated by Rituxan. (latest reports from 14,265 Non-hodgkin's Lymphoma patients)
Malabsorption (a state arising from abnormality in absorption of food nutrients across the gastrointestinal (gi) tract) has been reported by people with osteoporosis, high blood pressure, crohn's disease, depression, high blood cholesterol. (latest reports from 1,529 Malabsorption patients)

Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Can r-chop chemotherapy cause aortic stenosis?
Treated with 3 courses of R-CHOP plus radiotherapy for Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of orbit of eye in 2010. In complete remission until 2014 then relapse of genetically identical tumor in maxillary sinus. Recently have received 3 courses of R-ICE. During the past week I have had a cardiac ECHO which showed aortic stenosis. I also had an episode of hypotension and bradycardia lasting about a day during one the RICE treatments.
- What does a methotrexate rash look like? a cytarabine rash? if either of these chemos is responsible for my rash, what does it indicate about appropriate therapies going forward?
Treated for Stage 1 Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma in 2009 and had only 4 courses of Chemo vs the usual 6 due to a rash that showed up on Day 14 of the 4th cycle. At end of treatment and 1 year following PET scan was negative.
Diagnosed in April 2013 with Burkitt Lymphoma. Negative for HIV-AIDS, Epstein-Barr, liver disease. Active nodes on both sides of diaphragm but brain MRI and bone marrow negative. Have received HYPER-CVAD therapy courses 1A, 1B, 2A, and 2B. On day 4 of 2B course showed a flat rash mostly on forearms & lower abdomen with some involvement of chest, neck, and back. Not really itchy but sensitive if rubbed by clothing. No fever. Diarrhea, but diarrhea has followed every chemo course usually starting Day 5 and continuing for 2 or 3 days. So far, doctor has not commented on whether methotrexate, cytarabine, or something else used to treat side effects might be causing the rash, but does say it looks like a drug rash.
On Day 11 of this chemo course my platelets & hemoglobin were low enough to require transfusions of platelets and 2 units of blood. WBC and ANC profoundly low despite having had a Neulasta shot on Day 4.
- Is it ok to mix restoril and cannabis for insomnia? (1 answer)
I have always suffered from intermittent insomnia. But now that I am undergoing chemotherapy, the steroids such as Prednisone have magnified my insomnia to the chronic level. I just to not sleep! It's maddening. Doc finally prescribed Restoril. Took it at 11:30pm and it is now 2:45am and I am still wide awake. Wondering if I could now take one of my cannabis lozenges (low THC, high CBD).
- Can lymphoma cause uti
- Bladder removed and platelets increased. why?
Diagnosed with bladder cancer in Dec. 2012. At that time had low platelet count of 67,000 due to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma so pre-RC chemo was not possible. Had bladder removed in early March '13 and platelets are now 147,000. That is highest platelet count I have had since Non-Hodgkins diagnosis even after chemo in 2007 and again in 2011. Post-RC chemo was not recommended. So why did platelet count more than double. Not complaining, just curious.

- Non-hodgkin's lymphoma in lipitor
My mother is in remission from non-hodgkins lymphoma. She took lipitor prior to her illness
- I got pneumonia while taking topamax, obvious correlation
I do not take all the medicines above all the time but I am using an implanted pump giving me less than 2mg of dilaudid per day, 75 mg effexor daily and usually buspar. Dr prescribed topamax within 4 days I was hospitalized with Pneumonia, stayed a week came home a week had a clear chest x ray and the next week I got it again and was hospitalized 9 days that time. I knew I had been on the med but could not remember the side effect that made me come off previously until i started it again 2 days ago and woke today with Pneumonia again. Last time my pulmonologist said that the med in combination with the antidepressant which is all I take right now relaxes me too much and it paralyzes my choking reflex causing aspiration of saliva and ultimately waking up sick as the bacteria laced fluid goes crazy in the moist conditions of the lungs.

From this study (2 years ago):
Malabsorption is off and on, depending on diet. Began in late 1960s from a 3-year bout with
ameobic dysentery. In recent years, external xray treatment for prostate cancer has exacerbated
this condition and diarrhea.
From this study (2 years ago):
Post 2 years on rituximab for 12 doses,after completing 8 cycle of R-CHOP.
WBC and ANC remain low.
