Andy McNeil from Winchester, England, talks about his Hodgkin lymphoma diagnosis in this Lymphoma Association film. He discusses how a locum doctor advised him to have x-rays and a blood test when he saw he was feeling unwell, and goes on to describe the diagnosis process.
Andy explains how he maintained a positive attitude towards treatment and was keen that the treatment worked around his own business. He advises fellow lymphoma patients to try and fill their time doing things they enjoy to help them through treatment–whether that’s socializing with friends or taking up a hobby.
