I was diagnosed in July 2009 with Hodgkin’s 2A with an 11 cm mediastinal mass and will be finishing up ABVD chemo on the 19th of March. I had a PET scan in January and was told that I was cancer free but would need to continue with the treatment. My doctor suggested I complete 6-8 cycles of chemo with no radiation and after 4 cycles he suggested I complete the 8 cycles. Has anyone here had 8 cycles of ABVD? Are there any long term side affects or complications from having 8 cycles as opposed to 6? I am 24 yrs old and as I come to an end with my treatment I have this fear that I will relapse. Starting a family is also another fear. My doctor says there should be no problem but the fear of relapsing or pregnancy complications keeps scaring me.
