I have non-hodgkins lymphoma for fifteen months without being treated is there a time limit that I should be watching for treatment should start?

In brief: No.

If you have had a non-hodgkin's lymphoma (nhl), i suspect (but don't know) that you have an indolent lymphoma such as follicular lymphoma.
In that case "watch and wait" or "active observation" is an option. When and how to treat is beyond the scope of this answer but reasons include symptoms and patient preference.
