alternative treatment for hodgkins lymphoma

Posted by svulet on Mar 11, 2014 7:34 pm

Hi, I am 24 years old, diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma nodular sclerosis stage 2a. I have completed 12 cycles of abvd. It was unsuccessful. I am now finishing up 20 rounds of radiation.  Doctors are pushing for a stem cell transplant. The success rate of this in my situation is about 30%. Due to the long terms side effects that come with this treatment, I am extremely hesitant to do this. 

Has anyone tried any alternative therapies with (or without) success?
