    From what I understand, it can be different for everyone.

    I started ABVD 4 weeks ago (two treatments in now) and the way I have felt after each have been similar. Day 1-4 I was nauseous, Day 4-5...

    And if you have a port, do you feel it when you are injected? Does it feel the same as having an IV put in?

    Do you notice it throughout the day, or do you eventually forget about it?
