hi, i dont know what it is like to be a mother with lymphoma but i do know what it is like to have lymphoma and i am pleased to tell you i have been in remission for 9 years now and was able to have a baby girl 2 years ago... all i can say to you is dont let it get you down and dont let it stop you i had more good days than bad and my energy levels were fine, few aches and pains but i did things i always did just had to be careful around people with colds and bugs but i certainly didnt live like a prisoner, play with your baby when your having a good day and the cuddles will feel brilliant on a bad one.... good luck and take care and if you want anymore advice or someone to chat to my email address is maxxie79@hotmail.com xx
