I am a surviver of Hodgkins 13 1/2 yrs ago. had chemo and radiation.
Have been fine with little side effects abut all in all have a great life.. ( theres hope for everyone out there!) I was just diagnosed with emphazyma((COPD) from my radiation treatments, im a non smoker. Dr having hard time because my case is different from the normal copd people. Hs anyone ever had this or has heard about a survivor having this.. I knew they said it could be a possibility far down the road but to me this isnt what i pictured. looking to find a good dr that would treat me with understanding of this matter. also allergies got worse after my treatments and i am allergic to the normal albuteral treatments..
any insight would be appreiciated.
Still doing well..still enjoying my family.. again- there's hope.. DOn't ever loose that to any new diagnosed people taht may be reading this! :)
also a heavyness comes peridically on the side of my chest up top left side. any ideas??
anyone have it??
