This site has helped me so much before, so I am sure it can help me now. I finished 12 treatments of chemotherapy and 5 weeks of radiation for Stage 2B Hodgkins. This Monday is my first round of follow-up tests. I am a nervous wreck. I am soooo worried about it coming back. If I get a headache, or if I feel tired, or if something just doesn't seem right, I panic. I always think it is the cancer coming back. I am so scared all of the time. While I was sick, I kept looking forward to the summer and thinking it would be the best time ever since I would be finished everything. I think I still cry almost as much as I did while I was sick because I am SO SCARED of it coming back. I think I just need some comfort, some success stories. I am soooo nervous all the time. I am 22, I want to enjoy my life. Please help. Thanks so much.
