Chemo Began 12/02/2013... Bleomycin-Cisplatin and Etoposide
On my third treatment and then will have a week off
Cisplatin once a week In conjunction with the radiation. Then Five series with Etoposide.
Cisplatin: Took 2 treatments, 1 week apart. Tolerated well. No nausea, though stomach very "acidy" feeling. Eating bland foods often throughout the day helped. Did have some tiredness. No loss of hair. Had to stop Cisplatin for a while due to frequent ringing in ears. Cisplatin can lead to permanent hearing loss. Was able to complete last 4 Cisplatin after a break. Have some hearing loss, but not much. Will be using an experimental drug-Avastin, as well. Avastin: no loss of hair. Felt a coldness in the core of the body and extremities. Combined with Cisplatin, usually left me feeling poor and unable to work for about 5 days. Starting Taxol, Carboplatin, and Avastin again next week.

2/3/14 - 3/10/14 : 6 weekly Cisplatin doses @ 30mg/m^2 Side Effects - Ringing in ears (went from minor to moderate). Constipation. General "bad" feeling...like having a cold without the symptoms. Overall I think I did ok with the chemo though.
Cisplatin low dose for 5 cycles once a week. Tolerated it well just very tired. Considering I had concurrent radiation and chemo it was hard to tell what was causing all my nausea and vomiting but we think it was the radiation. Also I had preventive chemo cisplatin and taxol ( lost hair with this ) , three rounds , to help potentially stop a recurrence.

IV chemo is followed by two days of dextametazone (steroid pills) which give me a boost. Hair loss, dry hands - currently trying to prevent them from cracking, some fatigue.
