I have just been diagnosed with stage IV Hodgkin's disease (classical type).
I have started my ABVD chemo treatments (1 so far out of 12).
The PET scan report shows that it is present in:
-cervical nodes (posterior, anterior), periclavicular, mediastinal, paratracheal, sub carinal, and axillary nodes.
-retroperitoneal nodes (the most voluminous mass found, my primary node)
-Iliac crest, sternal body (L5), left humerus, head of the right femur
I would greatly appreciate any advice, support and information which could help me go through this. I would be particularly interested in hearing about the experiences of people at the same stage of the disease.
