Afternoon all! Chuffed to have found this forum and you lovely folks
In Sept 2018, and at 30 years old, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma, which had spread from my lymph nodes to my shoulder, spine, pelvis and right hip. I underwent 4 rounds of BEACOPP Esc (blergh) and went into remission in Jan 2019.
I’m now 33, and celebrating 2 years in remission (touch wood!). I’m endlessly grateful to still be here - though I won’t sugarcoat my experiences; I’ve been left with a number of crummy issues such as mobility problems and infertility. But hey, I am here to moan about it, and I will not ask for more than that.
Keen to connect with others who have been through similar experiences, and to offer what support, advice and cheeky humour I can to those going currently through it (I kept a blog through my experiences, which might be of interest to some). Strength in community
