I posted before about hair and ABVD trreatment, I have since shaved the rest of my hair that was left. I have stage 3A Hodgkins Lymphoma and I have had lots of complications from side effects of my ABVD treatment, ended up in hospital etc. I had pneumonia heading into this as well so my lungs are damaged anyways and they removed the bleomycin from the cocktail as well. My lungs and liver are slowly getting worse each chemo and in hospital I was nutrepenic and they gave me shots of neupagin each day to boost WBC. The following treatment I had nuelasta. The 3rd treatment they removed neulasta as it being a controversial shot across the country, especially for hodgkins patients. I went today for my chemo and my WBC were only at 1.8- (so they never came up after last treatment at all) They decided to do my treatment anyways and give me a nuelasta shot again in 24 hrs. I still have 8 treatments left. I have read things and try to eat protein rich foods etc. What else can I do? And what are some of the best foods that people recommend? I am very postive, but getting a little frustrated. I am a very active person especially with my 3 kids and I just want to be better! Or at least maintain while I am getting cured! Thank you!
