I was diagnosed with stage 4 HL in April and I had my second round of the ABVD just over a week ago. I felt horrible after my first round. I had a fairly traumatic mass exodus of hair today, but aside from that, the second round wasn't nearly as bad as the first. Was the first one the worst, or am I in the eye of the storm or something? They had to give me pain killers through that first one which I didn't need this time, so I'm sure that was a contributing factor, but the fact that I've felt so good after this round has me worried because there is no way that this is going to be that easy. So.. How much worse is this going to get? All of the pain that was caused by the cancer is gone and I'm assuming that I'm going to really feel like I'm being poisoned here pretty soon. Sharing any experiences would be appreciated. Thanks!
