Hi...I am a childhood cancer survivor (rhabdomyosarcoma). In 1973 it was very rare and I had almost nil chances of survival. I had aggressive chemo (vincristine,dactinomycin,cytoxan). I was 16 then and am 44 now. I have had a very hard and strange life since the cancer and am just finding out that I may have long term effects from chemo. I am trying to find out any information about the long term effects. I would also like to communicate with others my age who went through chemo in the earlys 70's. I have early menopause...tinnitus...elecrtical-shock feelings in foot...numbness in my toes...depression/panic... I am finding the medical community very lacking... Can anyone help me?
