Tell me about it. I have Sjogren's Antibody - - which is really just a minor inconvenience and is NOT at all the same as Sjogren's Syndrome. I don't know how many doctors have read as far as "Sjogren . . ." on my medical records and proceeded to freak out.

Good luck with your Dad.

Good luck to him. I Wiki'd it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castleman%27s_disease sounds really serious. it seems that other disease research has a crossover effect into your father's problem.
