I had stage IA Hodgkins back in 95' with 6 weeks of upper field radiation therapy. I'm very blessed to be a 7 year survivor. My only complaint is the fact that I have loss a good deal of muscle in my neck and upper body areas. Being athletic this has been tough to deal with. I would appreciate any information regarding the rebuilding of muscle tissue following radiation. Thanks.
