Tuesday was my first meeting with the oncologist about my new diagnosis of Hodgkin Lymphoma. Overall the appointment went quite well, and Kathie and I left feeling better about the whole situation, now that we had more information and an initial treatment plan. I’ll be going for a PET scan on Friday which will tell us the extent of the disease, and will start ABVD chemotherapy in two to three weeks. The oncologist said that I’ve probably had the Hodgkin’s for over a year, but that since I seem to be in very good health otherwise and have no obvious lymph node problems, it’s probably not too advanced.
