In 1978 I was told I had Stage 1A Hodgkins, I was also told I would have to take radiation treatments which I did. I recieved a total 7432 rads of Colbalt 60 to the mediastinum and abdomen area. I would experience the neck burn and weight loss along with being sick until the treatments were over, after a 5 year period with out any return of the cancer I was given a clean bill of health by the treating Dr.I would not have any problems until some 19yrs. later when I started having heart trouble, then thyroid problems, breathing problems, diabetes, depression only to find out that the most recent problems have been Digestive, kidney,and swollowing problems and I've also been told that it stunned my growth. All of this is on going and I would like to hear from others who have had some of these problems.
