Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Last reply: 9 years ago

Hi, has anyone experience of this type of cancer? My Mother is 85 and diagnosed 4 months ago. She has had repeated infections and one round of chemo(14 days) with very bad re-action. Docs have now stopped steroids (40mg a day) .She is sleeping about 20 hours a day and still they say she is doing well.No plans for further chemo. We are deeply worried but feel we are not getting enough info. Before this she was 100% brain perfect but now quite confused.Can anyone offer any info?

Hi Mondaymillion,

I am sorry to hear your Mam is not well. I hope you connect with other Hodgkins Lymphoma people on this forum. I'm afraid I know nothing about it but found this link to a Lymphoma support group that might be some use to you for information and help?

Good luck,
Flo.
