In july 2015, I was diagnosed with hodgkins lymphoma stage 2A with a bulky mass in my chest. I had 6 rounds of ABVD followed by radiation and am in remission now. During chemo i had chest pain and horrible shortness of breath partly because the tumor was partially collasping one of my lungs but mostly from the Bleo. My CT showed some lung damage from everything but it seems minor from what the report says. The pain finally went away 1 year after radiation was completed but out of no where i had a sharp chest pain which seemed to start this off and on chest pain and shortness of breath that i am having again. Some of my lymph nodes will hurt and swell but no tumors. My ct chest today shows that the i am stable. Fatigue is still present as is chemo brain and occasional neuropathy of my feet but it is the chest pain and shortness of breath that bothers me the most. The tumor is only 7 cm now and is in my upper right area of my chest but my pain is mostly all on my left side of my chest. Plus i now have borderline high cholesterol. I am thankful for all the medical tx and care i received. I just feel like i need assurance that i am not crazy and my shortness of breath and chest pain is related to the chemo and radiation.
