I was diagnosed with stage4A Hodgkins last September when I was three months pregnant. I went through six months of ABVD chemo for the remainder of my pregnancy and finally had a beautiful bouncing baby girl in February. I had six weeks off and finished with two more months of treatment and finally finished in May. My CAT and PET scans were all clear right after baby was born. They were all clear mid-June. I am thrilled, but a fear of it returning is consuming me. I am overly concerned about any pain or feeling I feel and I hate to call my doctor for everything. I want to live everyday enjoying my family and life. I keep busy, I have four children now and they are the joy of my life. I have a supportive husband. Does it get easier with every negative scan? or is it always going to be like this? Any suggestions out there??
