    So the CT scan confirmed swollen lymph nodes -and they will do the biposy - waiting for the surgeon to book the appt. I also got results of elevated CRP and ESP levels that the dr said mean inflammation. Has anyone who had lyphoma had these elevated as well? I asked the dr out right - does this lean towards one way or the other? He says he still feel its leaning towards something viral. but he did another test today for LDH levels. My dr is a lymphoma survivor and he said they do this test for him - so he wants to see the level. More waiting I guess. tests just show something is going on.
