I had Stage 4B Nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkins lymphoma when I was 17.Lucky me I didn't have it in the liver or bone marrow, but did have it in the left lung. I am now 46, and for the last 15 or so years I have been getting bad migrains and slowly losing short term memory to the point that 20 or more times a day I forget what I am doing or wanting to do. I even got a pad to write things down on and forget what I wanted to write down bye the time I get to the pad or forget where the pad is even when I keep it in the same place. I only had extremely heavy doses of the M.O.P.P. regimen because I had a severe allergic reaction to the Adriamycin in the A.B.V.D. regimen, and was told I couldn't have radiation because it would have killed me on the first treatment. Has anyone else had memory problems after Chemo. If so please let me know what I can do to stop or slow down the loss. Or point me in the right direction. I have no Insurance and have been denied Social Security 3 times now because they said I am not bad enough the first and second time and the last time they said because my injury happened during the commission of a felony that they have no record of. I told them that's because their is no felony on my record, I have never even been arrested or done anything to get arrested for. I have no money, no job for the last two years and no insurance. I am desperate for help!!!!
