Is anyone suffering from muscle loss due to their treatment as a child? I was treated for Hodgkin's Disease at age 7 and again at age 10. I am 41 presently and loosing muscle in my left lower body. Physicians feel this is due to radiation of my spine during treatment. I would be greatful to hear from anyone with similar problems. Thanks.
