I had hodgkins disease in 1999. I thought I got it taken care of in September of 2000. The area was in my lungs and throat and spleen. Now its near my liver and pancreas. I have 5-6 massess and the largest was 8 cm now its 4. It is going down but will it go away? Well, I called my doctor and he told me to get with my regular physican. She had moved her business and there was no way to get in touch with her. I found another doctor and he did blood work it showed up nothing. We moved to another state in 2003 and I started seeing another doctor here and the blood work came back I had hodgkins again, from 6 months up to now i had not seen a doctor with the right diagnosis and so its been 2 years growing. When i probably had it a year after i had got rid of it. So i had more chemo and rad and a BMT. Went through all that and its still there. I am going to have to go through this all again the doctors are telling me. Will I ever get through this and will it ever go away? Does any one go through this? My sister died with a brain tumor and I am raising her children. My sister was 22 and she had cancer the same time in 1999 that i did. WHY?? I need some people to talk to with the same situation with my cancer not about their siblings but about going through a BMT and having to go through that again. What are the odds?
