Frontal Hybrid Chemotherapy

I'm trying to find people who have received Frontal Hybrid" combination drug therapy for hodgkins disease. I believe that the treatment is specific to The Christie Hospital in the UK but there may be others out there using this treatment now.

My reason for trying to find others is that I am suffering from a progressive problem with my joints/ligaments. About 3 months after my treatment finished I was able to run up the 11 flights of stairs to my apartment. Now, 3 months later I am unable to even walk up 1 flight! My knees, hips, calves and other ligaments are just seizing up and no-one out there in medical land seems remotely interested.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.
