I was diagnosed with Hodgkins in 1982 as a Sr. In College (I was a Sr. In college). after my spleen was removed I went through extended Mantle radiation with both Liniac and Cobalt therapy. Unfortunately I have had. Plethora of side effects. I have colitis, hypothyroidism, and just 2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I am struggling now because my cancer is in the early stage, yet the fact that I have already had radiation therapy, it is no longer an option to treat this canc...I ham being told to go right to a Bi lateral Mastectomy and chemotherapy. Anyone have any similar stories or thoughts?
