Hodgkins lymphoma second time what type of treatment would be recommended?

Depends on Stage. The therapy of relapsed hodgkin's lymphoma depends on the stage of lymphoma at relapse, the time since initial therapy, and the type of therapy that was initially given. For most patients with relapses in many lymph node or non lymph node sites the usual therapy is intensive chemotherapy followed by a stem cell transplant. This should be done at a large academic hospital not a small community hospital.
Depends on age. If young, one would consider a bone marrow transplant depending on location of disease, response to pre transplant chemotherapy. If not a transplant candidate, radiation, salvage chemotherapy. There are several options all with good responses. Hope this helps. Difficult to give you a definite answer without reviewing the pathology, scans, and examination.

Grandma diagnosed with stage 3 non-hodgkins lymphoma. After 3 years of treatment shes completely cancer free. High or low chance cancer will come back?

Depends on subtype. There are dozens of different subtypes of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas.

Since in your Grandma's case, it's either "cured" or "not cured", why not plan with her for a happy rest-of-her-life, assume a cure, and live richly -- remembering to treasure whatever time you have together.

It depends. There are several different types of Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas(NHL). The common ones include Follicular lymphoma which is low grade and indolent but can relapse even after 3-5 years of remission. The other common one is called Diffuse large B cell(DLBCL). This is potentially curable and very unlikely to relapse after 3 years of remission. So check which su-btype of NHL does she have. Read more...
