I was found to have stage 2a hodgkins on may,1, 2003. I have finished my cemo thank god, and I am starting radiation on the 2nd of october. Man I can't wait for my hair to grow back. My eyebrows beard and mustache and head are as bald as can be. Along with everywhere else. How long does it usually take for the hair to come back?? It sure is nice to tast my food normally though. Also what kind of feedback can I get on how radiation is compared to cemo. My cemo was pretty sucky but it could have been worse. I had ABVD for 4 cycles (eight treatments). Three hours on a IV every other week for 4 months. But really wondering about the hair time and radiation effect.
