On May 19th, 2016, a lymph node was removed from Tryg's neck which tested positive for Hodgkin's lymphoma. On June 2, 2016, he had a nodule removed from his lung which also came back positive for Hodgkin's lymphoma. Because the cancer is not contained to his lymph nodes, it is stage IV. Stage IV is still very treatable.
Tryg will have four rounds of chemotherapy, with each round being 21 days. He will have in-patient infusions at Mayo Clinic, days 1-3 and day 8. They are expecting him to be able to be home most of the other days. Tryg begins his first round of chemo on June 16, 2016.
Tryg will most likely need radiation, but that will be decided after re-evaluations, which are done after two rounds are complete and then again after the final round.
The Mayo Clinic will also be monitoring Tryg's Crohn's disease, which was diagnosed January 2015 at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital in Washington.
