      Yes, I had both. First chemo (cvpp) then (abdik) . Then they finished with cobalt radiation. All this was in 83-84'.

      I ask as in 1987, I had radiation therapy. In 1989, I had Chemotherapy. Both times to treat Hodgkins Lymphoma.

      Since 2009, I've been diagnosed with late-effects of the above treatments. They include: high blood pressure, sleep apnea, heart valve disease, chronic ashtmatic bronchitis, chronic fatigue and chronic kidney disease.

      I have found it's so important for me to gain as much perspective as possible about my current and evolving health status,

      Thank you for asking. You're welcome to know any more details of my survivorship story.

      Regards, Glen
