Cisplatin (Platinol, Platinol-AQ) Chemotherapy Chemotherapies

What Cisplatin (Platinol, Platinol-AQ) Chemotherapy Cancer Survivors said about their Chemotherapies.

6 treatments chemotherapy (carbo/placing/Avastin
First chemo was on Friday 9/15/17. 3 chemo infusions over 8 hours. To be done every 3 weeks. Next scheduled 10/6/17. Have had no nausea or vomiting. Saturday night, severe pressure in rectum, vaginal area and lower pelvic region. Contacted physician due to pain and that no amount of medicine was subsiding pain. Was advised that it seems as if the chemo is working. The pressure could be due to the necrotic tissue from the cancer itself is moving, liquid retention, or inflammation from the chemo. He reassured me that pain and pressure should go away within a few days. Was instructed to take higher dose of percocet. The higher dose of pain meds has done its due diligence, but knocks me out too. It is now three days later and pain and pressure has become more bearable, and treatable with 800mg motrin. Feeling extremely tired, which is very odd being that I am very active. Powering through, I will win this battle.
