My boyfriend will be undergoing chemo for the first time. This is a 3rd recurrence, with widespread metastases. He's a professional musician, singer, guitarist - I know that cisplatin causes hearing loss and peripheral neuropathy. Are there acceptable alternatives? Are there ways to prevent or limit these side-effects? I can't find any real info other than carboplatin as a substitute - But it's not as effective in treating TC. Help?
