Hi everyone, my dad had 8 completed 4 cycles of ABVD for Stage IIA hodgkins. He is now ready to have 20 radiation treatments starting on Tuesday. We are worried, my dad is having radiation to the mantle field. He had nodes in neck and armpit, why do they have to do the entire chest? We hope he tolerates this well, we are worried about lung inflammation? or sore throat.
