I was diagnoised with NHL at the age of 17 in 1982. I was told at the time this protocol was the only chance I had of survivoral. The long term effects have been one thing after another. It started with lung problems such as fibrosis and 7 pneumothoraxes. The tumor was growing around my heart and covered my entire chest. I now have reduced heart function and will need my valves replaced one day. Neuropathy is the latest problem which painful and hard to deal with. I do know that I am so blessed and thankful to be 30 years and 5 months cancer free. I get asked all the time....if you knew Chemo would cause this type of damage would you still have taken it? I hate that question. I would not be here today and have 4 children without it. I am looking for others who took this protocol.
