I recently completed chemo, 6 rounds (12 treatments) of ABVD, right before treatment #12 the day before actually I participated in the LIVESTRONG Challenge and walked the 5K without a problem, the next day at chemo my blood pressure was on the low side as were the results from my CBC. But we continued the last dose of treatment, since I have been having trouble breathing, I just cannot get a deep breath. I am ok as long as I am sitting or laying down, but even going from my couch to the kitchen 20 feet away makes me feel winded, and out of breath. I have emailed my oncologist but no response as of yet. Has anyone experienced anything similar? Did it subside on its own?? Hoping that this is not a long term side effect.
