I am 23 years old with Hodgkin's lymphoma. I have completed 4 chemos, and one surgery remove nodes. Im new to this site. I was wanting to connect with people with the same condition and see there experiences, its also difficult as Im not in contact with any young people and want someone to relate . I am open and happy to have anyone of any age and any condition to talk to, its not exclusive, and would just like to hear of others experiences.thank you
My name is Marcus
We never know what is orotund the corner. Who would of thought at 23 you would be diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, a real shock to the system. Both physically and mentally just trying to get your head around it all.
A real kick in the guts.
I was 43 when I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2006 I had Chemo followed by radiotherapy. I have been Cancer free for 11 years now.
. I remember feeling shocked and just pure disbelief
Also feeling it was a fight I would fight and come out the other side.
One step one day at a time
If there is anything I can help you with please let me Know.
Be kind to yourself
Just after Christmas in 2018 I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I am also 23 years old. As of this post I have finished two chemo treatments (hooray)! Only five more months to go! 🙂 I realize that as I am posting this almost a year after yours that you may be done with treatment. Anyway, I just wanted to wish you all the best and I hope you kicked cancers butt!!
Thanks for the support friends. It's been a year since I was diagnosed with cancer. After 12 chemoes and radiation I am all fit and went back to my daily life . During my cancer period I got worried so much, thus my post here .I hoped for someone with similar experience for support. The community wasn't active then. I wish it was. But anyhow I kicked cancer out of my body. Now let's join together if it's possible, so that we could provide that support to other people who are in pain. If you're interested let's do it
Thanks for updating your post.
I'm almost twice your age and waiting to hear back about my biopsy.
I'm pretty sure if I have cancer I have the same one as you.
I'm on the fence about having treatment if I do.
I know we all react differently to treatment but how did it go for you.
I have already had skin cancer removed 10 months ago. I'm just tried of waiting and not knowing
I hope you are well
