I never thought I would be placing a message in this forum, but then again nobody does. I was just diagnosed with HD on Monday, 9-22. I am still waiting to be Staged, but I know I am in a III or IV. I'll get the results on Monday. It was a VERY HARD week, but my chest is out and I am ready to fight, as all of you have. My Doc said I will be getting 6 cycles of ABVD/MOPP. I know a lot of people just get ABVD. Anyone know if there is big a difference between the combo or ABVD alone? I have a lot of questions about the side effects of chemo, but I guess I'll have to find them out for myself. The biggest ones are, is there a pattern to your bad days? How sick/tired do you get? How bad does food taste?
Any answers would be great. Thanks!!
