Anemia (low red blood cell counts) - kmarquis

Side Effects Associated with Hodgkin Disease. Posted on September 7, 2012 View this journey (8 Experiences)

I think this was the most disappointing thing in my treatment - every week I went to get blood counts done to see if I could get chemo that week. I just wanted the treatment to be over with!! And it was devastating to have to postpone because my counts were too low. I kept watching the calendar as my first day of college crept closer and closer. Would I be done in time? How would I manage college AND chemo? I was adamant that college not be postponed, despite my parents' opinion on that. While I understood their concerns, I was sure I could make that work just as I managed to keep up with my classes at school during my treatment and managed to stay involved in school activities on top of that.
