I am looking for some answers for a friend in Romania. For years now he's been batteling Hodgkins and now he is even worse. He had chimo in the past years and he was feeling better for a while , but the limph nodes in his neck never fully went away and he seeked more treatment. He recently went to Israel and had a stem cell transplant and I just found out that he just got back from Israel and he is like a vegetable. He doesn't recognize his friends and family. He can't control his bowels and doesn't talk anymore. I reasearched Hodgkins dissease risks and risks from stem cell transplant and couldn't find anything like this.His family is crushed..they did anything they could. He's only 32 years old and is married and has a 5 year old daughter. If anyone can help and let me know what this illness is or what might have caused it, please reply to my post.
Thank you! Adina
