ICYMI Eddie Alderson Interview

Soap Opera Digest: Let’s go back to 2016. What made you take that initial trip to the doctor?
Eddie Alderson: I had been working out and had lost some weight. I figured it was because I had been eating better and going to the gym. I started getting night sweats a lot. It wasn’t every night, but it was pretty often. I started noticing that my heart was racing pretty fast. It would even be when I was just there watching TV. I ended up going to a cardiologist. He wanted me to get a chest X-ray and see what was going on. He [also] wanted me to go to Fox Chase Cancer Center to get a PET scan. That is when I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Digest: What were your initial thoughts when you were first diagnosed?
Alderson: It was literally the last thing you ever think is going on. It is not like I was feeling sick or anything like that. I was with my mom, my dad and my sister [when I found out]. [The doctor] showed us the X-ray and said, “That shade right there is cancer.”

The second you hear that word, it is hard to describe, kind of like the world just freezes. It is weird, I wasn’t too emotional about it. I just kind of sat there and everything went quiet. My initial thought was, “Okay, let’s just get on it. Let’s just do what we’ve got to do.” I haven’t really been too emotional. I have really tried to keep positive, with the help of my family and my girlfriend, Sylwia, who has just been unbelievable.

Digest: Did seeing your reaction to the news help your family deal with the diagnosis?
Alderson: I think so. My mom is a very emotional person, but seeing the way I have handled it has absolutely helped. She has been incredibly strong. To be honest, I didn’t know how she would be through all of this, just because she is so in love with my sister and me.

More so than for myself, I have tried to maintain my strength for them. I don’t want it to affect our lives so much. But they have been so strong. I am sure [my mom] has her moments. We all have our moments. Kristen [Alderson, ex-Starr, OLTL et al] was there for every single treatment with me, making sure I was happy. We’d listen to music and watch FAMILY GUY, and she has been such an amazing sister and my best friend.

Digest: What were your treatment options and how long did it take to start chemo from when you were diagnosed?
Alderson: I was diagnosed on November 14 [2016] and I was admitted to the hospital that day. I didn’t start the chemo immediately but I started on steroids and fluids around the clock. They wanted to do a biopsy and confirm what it was. A couple of weeks after that, I started chemo.

I was doing it through Fox Chase Cancer Center. I would get it every other Friday for a couple of hours. I would go in, then have a week off. I reacted really well to it. I wasn’t sick [and] I didn’t lose any of my hair. I did the treatment that they have been doing since the ’80s or ’90s [called] ABVD. I did that for six months. Then they waited 6-8 weeks after that to do another scan. After I did the scan, there was still some residual cancer in my body. This time around, I had to start stronger chemo and I would be staying in the hospital for a few days at a time. It is three days in the hospital: Thursday/Friday/Saturday, check out Sunday, with chemo lasting for four hours.
