Wish I had found this site sooner. I thought the tingling and hearing loss was just me!
I was diagnosed with HD in 1992 after a routine physical found a lump. Laperotomy, spleenectomy folloed by mantle and peri-aortic radiation (6 weeks maybe?). Re-occurance in my pelvis (or maybe it was always there?!) in 1993. Treated with ABVD (six courses) and then pelvic radiation. Cancer free since 1994......until Feb 2009. DCIS in left breast. Everyone I have spoken to has recommended at least a mastectomy or een a bi-lateral. With a 25-30% chance that it will happen again, a bi-lateral mastectomy seems like the best option - piece of mind wise. Seems like a drastic move though.....
Any thoughts? Experiences? I have an appointement with my surgeon on 3/24 to maybe set up surguery.....
