    Hi Carol, no, I didn't have any itching. That's interesting that you did. I have'nt heard that one before. Glad it stopped after you started radiation. I just had my annual follow up of blood work and chest x-ray last week. Doc says all if fine. But he is now asking all his former patients like me to have a colonoscopy every 4 or 5 years now. He recently had one like us that came up with colon cancer. I had one done 3 years ago, since we are in that age range to watch for that now. I also just started Levoxyl .50 mg for my thyroid, since it was radiated back then and now it is underproducing. Feeling good now though. Take care.

      Carol, I am a 29 yr survivor. I have and will be going back every year for the rest of my life for blood check and chest x rays suggested by my doc. Hmm. I thought or assumed everyone did?

      I know Doug I always wondered why I am not checked out yearly with some sort of tests. I did ask my doc to get a chest x-ray done last fall because it had been awhile and that is where my hodgkins was. I had a large chest mass and it showed on x-ray when they started doing all the tests on me 31 yrs ago.

      Mine was massive in my chest as well. At least you can direct your doc to run the tests it may be a good idea.
