      The short answer is you're not doomed and yes there are survivors with multiple hot lymph nodes.

      I'm sure that many of them will post replies to you. 

      My course was a bit different than your's.  I never had the opportunity to catch the disease at the lymph nodes as I went from Stage I to Stage IV with multiple organ involvement.  I'm doing well, not clear of the disease, but fighting the battle with a great medical team.

      The unfortunate consequence of the new forum is that it is not easy for new visitors to see the depth of experiences that our members have.  I'm sure that you will hear from many of them
