After a very long month, we finally have a diagnosis. My husband has Hodgkins lymphoma. Although he told us in September that this was what he thought it was, it was very hard to have it confirmed. The main mass is in his lung, and the least invasive biopsy came back negative. We had a biopsy done on some swollen lymph nodes under his arm, and they confirmed it. We have not done any staging yet, but he is set to start treatment in 10 days. He has 8 procedures that need to be completed before then. The doctor said it is classic hodgkins, but when I looked it up, that is also broken into subgroups (I think). The doctor said it is a less common lymphoma and is more aggressive. It is devistating, but now we have some answers and can start our new adventure. Any help/hope/stories with hodgkins would be appreciated (or any hopeful stories for that matter).
