Visiting the clinic

As well as learning all about non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and its management, you will be making your first visits to the specialist unit at your local hospital. This is where you will have had some or all of your diagnostic tests and will have your treatment.
This may be a little daunting at first, as you are not only having to take in everything that you are being told, but also have to learn about the staff at the unit and the roles they perform.

Don’t worry about trying to remember it all straight away. You will be given a point of contact, such as a nurse specialist or doctor, to answer any questions you may have. You will also continue to have regular check-ups.

Before you attend each appointment, make sure you are prepared well in advance and have all the things you were asked to bring at the end of your last visit, particularly if you will be staying overnight.

Also, think about any questions you either did not ask at your last visit or you have thought of in the meantime, writing them down so you don’t forget.
Finally, if you are worried about your visit, or are concerned that you will forget things, think about taking a friend or family member along with you for support.
