I am a 21 year old girl and I have Stage 2B Hodgkin's. I have had 6 rounds of chemo so far and have anywhere between 4 and 6 to go..that is depending on test results at the end of February. I am responding well to the medicine, so the prognosis looks good. But I am just sooo afraid of what lies ahead. I can tell that I feel worse with each treatment. I am so scared to keep getting more. Is it really going to be bad at the end?? My stomach can't seem to take much more on the day I get the treatment and the next few days. I take the medicines that prevent me from throwing up, but I still feel really sick. I just need a little advice as to how to get through the rest of them...I am so scared I am just going to get more and more sick. And also, out of curiousity, how long did it take for everyone's hair to grow back when they were finished their treatments?? Thank you so much, I am so happy we have something like this to talk to other people that know what we go through.
