Just curious about what treatment others have received for NPC. I did 33 radiation treatments. They made them a little stronger so I didn't have to do 35. I did my first Cisplatin on the first day of radiation, and then 3 weeks later did Carboplatin for 4 weeks because I had ringing in my ears. I finished up on March 4th, but my chemo doc told me I'd be doing another round of Chemo. Carboplatin and now I forget what else after a 4 week break. It will be once every 3 weeks for 3 rounds. (Unless something changes.)
Has anyone else done the second round of chemo? Oh, and I know I should know this, but I didn't want to know - I just wanted to be treated. I was never told what stage cancer I had. I'm going to ask at the next appt. Aside from the primary tumor (the size of a quarter) I had only a small dot on the PET scan in one of the lymph nodes below my ear. They weren't sure if it was an infection or cancer.
I sure hate to do more chemo, but it looks like that's my route.
