Hi, so here are my particulars - diagnosed HD stage IIB in March 2003, ABVD and about 3 weeks of radiaiton. Remission. Until now, I've found some more lumps in my neck. I have sensations in these areas like before I was diagnosed and also some chest pains. I know that this could be psychological, but it's really freaking me out, especially combined with the real (not imagined) lumps, oh and then there's the tiredness, intermitent night sweats and always picking up other little sicknesses. So, what I'm wondering, after looking at prognosis of recurrance - yeah, I know I shouldn't have done it - is, WHAT NEXT? I'm so so scared. I would love to hear from anyone who faced a similar situation (recurrance after less that a year of combined treatment) and came through it. I know I haven't had my CT scan yet, so I do have little hope that it'll be ok, but everything just feels so similar to before I was diagnosed) Don't get me wrong, I am trying to think positively, I may not be sounding it, but I know if I had it again I could fight it again and I'll get better. I guess I just need a little help and this forum was really good to me before, so I hope you can help again!
