    My apologies for the confusion. Please click on the name of the group above, Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL). Then you should see a white button, called New Topic, located in the brown horizontal bar. .

    Hi my name is Yoli
    I had an endoscopy done on Dec 13 of this year. They took out a 6mm polyp out and it came back from the pathologist that I have a low grade B-Cell Lymphoma consistent with extranodal marginal zone lymphoma of mucosa associated lymphoid tissue(MALT) I went to my GI and he explained that this was treatable and very low grade. He spoke to an oncologist and order a CT scan on Thurs Dec 29th. I have read so much that now I can't sleep I don't know what this is and what's going to happen to me because the H Pilori was negative. I need someone to give me support because first of all for the CT I can do the iodine but I can't drink the oral contrast, is this OK? Any answers would be helpful because with the holidays I have to wait to see this oncologist.

    Hello Yoli,
    I just drank a barium drink (banana) and had mo problem. Perhaps they have improved it recently?!!

    Hi sue:
    Thank you so much for your reply. The doctor is changing the order for just the iodine,but you're right it might not be so bad if I have to drink it. The last time I had it I got sick, so I'll pray it will be ok. The waiting to see the oncologist is really what's making me anxious.

    Thank you so much it's great to be able to talk to someone about this.
