I hope not: Aggressive large b-cell non-hodgkin's lymphomas typically are very chemotherapy sensitive at the time of diagnosis. If you have been newly diagnosed, do not give up hope; chemotherapy may ultimately render you free of disease. If your lymphoma is recurrent (came back after treatment or did not respond to chemotherapy) then your situation is more difficult.

Can you explain if it's too far gone if your lungs keep filling up with fluid when you have 4th stage large cell b lymphona?

Lungs fill up fluid: Filling up with fluid can be a couple of things: fluid collecting in the space between the lung and its lining, compressing the lung, causing shortness of breath. The other would be fluid collecting in the lung tissue itself, which can cause the same symptoms.
