Brief Answer: Lymph node enlargement Detailed Answer: Dear Jbhulal, Since biopsy of the lymph nodes have been done, you need not worry till they are reported negative. To my patient coming to me with the same problem I will advise to keep them under observation and continue with the treatment for other ailments. Keeping eyes closed and sleeping for long duration must be because of weakness but the kidney functions aught to be within normal limits. Truly, Dr. J. Ticku

Another cat scan yesterday which came out negative and today another MRI But only on IV no antibotics at the moment , it can be a bad case of arthris from the black spots on fingers , how can kidney start functioning again if thought to be suspicious lymphoma

Brief Answer: lymph node enlargement Detailed Answer: Dear Jbhulal, Though you have not disclosed the status of kidney function, I meant if the kidney functions are normal the drowsiness could be because of the general weakness or electrolyte disturbance in the body which could be overcome by nutritious diet and good fluid intake. As far as lymph node enlargement is concerned you need not worry as they have been reported normal. Truly, Dr. J. Ticku
