Has anyone experienced irreversible lung damage (Pulmonary Fibrosis) from ABVD/MOPPs? Also, has anyone lost up to 1/3 of their body weight from treatment and not be able to gain it back even years after treatment? Doctors have been baffled for 12 years now...

Radiation absolutely fried my lungs. Permanent damage. A friend has experienced the same.
