Chest pain 3 years post treatment?

lhodnet Member Posts: 62
Let me start off by saying I am due into my oncologist for a check up in the next month, but wanted to check in here first.

I am almost 3 years out from Hodgkin's Lymphoma, stage IIBX (in my chest) and I had Stanford V treatment along with 25 sessions of radiation. Recently I have begun to feel 'tight' in my chest along with cracking pains. They feel like scar tissue (I had an ACL replacement 10+ years ago) but it still makes me nervous.

I am wondering if anyone else has experienced side effects from chemo/radiation 3 years post treatment?

thank you!

    I have had the chest pains too. I am 7 years post treatment for Bulky State 2 HD. I started getting them very soon after chemo but they were only once in a blue moon. Maybe I would get them every other month or every month. They would come and go. Lately they have been coming everyday and several times a day. I'm wondering if I should call my oncologist or call my primary doc who I have only seen once and I don't really like.
