My brother was diagnosed last January with Hodgkins. (He is 60 years old). He went through a course of chemo and did very well. He's gained weight, hair has grown back and he says he feels great. The CT scan prior to this last one showed some "small activity". The doctors told him they suspected it was scar tissue (healing process). He just had another scan and the "small activity" has gotten larger around his spleen area. He is scheduled for a Pet Scan in early December. He seems to be handling this very well but I'm a nervous wreck. I'm frightened and don't know where to turn. I am trying to stay as positive and hopeful as he is. Most of the messages that I've been reading are messages of hope. I would love to hear from some of you out there who could help us get through this setback. Thank you for being here.
