I've been "sick" since July.  It started with a fever for a week with very swollen lymph nodes in my neck then it's moved around to my adenoids being infected, fluid in my ears, tubes in my ears, etc.  Normally I wouldn't be very concerned, it's easier to deal with than some of my other complaints, but since July, the swollen glands have persisted.  My concern is lymphoma.  Many tests have been done but I'm trying to keep this short.  They did a needle biospy that came back inconclusive and the next step would be a full blown biospy. I've been on Entocort for about 4 months & just finished the taper on 9/25, I'm also on Imuran (for about 3 years).  Obviously both decrease your immune system so I'm wondering (hoping) that getting off of the Entocort will help the glands go down.  My GI & ENT don't seem overly concerned at this point, and I have to say an episode of Mystery Diagnosis really put the lymphona idea into my head, but I'm looking for input/experiences from you guys.
Thanks :)
