My mom had nhl when she was in her early 20's. She is now 57. The last few years she has developed hearing problems, degenerative disc disease, her eyesight has declined, she had cancer of the tongue (she never smoked), and had a blockage in her upper arm area that led to a by-pass. I think that this is all the result of her getting radiation when she was younger and they didn't know how strong it needed to be to get rid of the cancer. Has anyone heard of this happening or knows where I can get more information on it? Your response is appreciated. She has recently started to feel dizzy again and this is what led to her needing to have a by-pass. I'm afraid her doctors aren't treating her properly.
