I just need honest opinons please...In January I brought the baby to the docotrs due to a swollen lymp in his groin. They put him on a antibiotic and we went back a few weeks later and they were on both sides, so they put him on stonger antibiotics. Its now May and we went to see a surgeon because they are still there are large. The surgeon said they are in his neck too. Last Thrusday he had a biospy done and all the surgeon said was it was the size of a grape...hes only 19 months old and today(Sunday) I had to bring him up to the hospital because his wound is infected badly. I was googeling it....i know bad! But I came across something that said if a person has blood cancers they are more likely to get an infection with surgery. Im going crazy waiting for the results, they did do some blood work and his white blood cell count is high. I know I need to wait but I need someone to tell me if they think it is or is not lymphoma!!!
