Long term side effects

Hello!  18 years ago I was diagnosed with and underwent treatment for Hodgkins Disease (chemo and radiation).  I am so honored to be a survivor!  Now, almost 20 years later I am having some major health issues and the more research I do, I seem to find that there are some long-term side effects to having had cancer treatments.  I am wondering if anyone else has experienced long-term effects and what they are and how you are treating them.  I guess I was young and naive and thought that once I was in the clear, it was for good, unless another cancer popped up!  For me, I'm noticing that I am aging faster, something I'd read was possible.  I've also developed some really awful gut issues that no dr. has been able to help me out with - yet...  I appreciate anyone's willingness to share.  Sometimes I feel so alone in all of this - no one understands or seems to believe me, think I'm just passing it off as an excuse, which isn't my intention at all!  I'd love to hear from others!  Thanks!
