My hubby who's 38 was dx in June 05 with Hodgkin's Lymphoma (stage 4). He had 6 cycles (12 treatments) of MOPP chemotherapy. He has a mild heart condition and couldn't take ABVD. His PET in March '06 was clear now in the last few days he's started swelling at his neck (not like last time but still swelling all the same). He's also very fatigued (like last time) and I'm scared to death. I don't mean to sound dumb but, is it possible that this cancer (or something worse) has come back so quickly? If I understood the doctor right, it was a 10 year "wait and see" period but, typically it didn't reoccur as the same form and usually not before a 3 year mark. He has a PET on Monday but, I'm just curious if anyone has had this happen before or is familiar with it? Thanks in advance and God Bless.
