    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): The worse part for me is the IV. Hate needles. Have learned to take a bed instead of a chair and sleep for about 30 minutes while the ABVD is infused. I feel so much better afterward and not weepy and tired. The next day I'm just a little tired and take naps.

      I went through the ABVD as well as MOPP treatments for Hodgkins 26 years ago, my white blood count bottomed out at one point to 500. spent 10 days in the hospital sucking on antibiotics. As far as this seaweed, this is a new one for me. But there is something new every week popping up that is supposed to cure us, or keep cancer from coming back, or coming at all. Maybe someone else has used it.
      Hope you're doing well.

      I take fucoidan capsules everyday with many other supplements. It is suppose to be an immune booster. also check into Astragalus this supplement is recommend to take during treatments.

      But always check with your Dr. I started taking all these supplements after treatment. Stay Strong.

    After three rounds of ABVD chemo, I seem to always have an annoying stomach ache now. It's my only problem I'm having. Any suggestions?

      I looked up the side effects of this treatment, and there are several that can cause stomach issues. Have you spoken to your oncology team about this issue? They would know what questions to ask you about the nature of your stomach ache, and prescribe the correct medications or give you appropriate suggestions for helping relieve the pain.

      I just finished my ABVD for Hodgkin's. My advice would be probiotics - my oncologist recommended florastor. I would suggest asking your oncologist specifically, though. Good luck.
