My husband Robert is scheduled for weekly cysplatin chemo infusions for the 7 week period along with the radiation treatments. The standard is 3 cycles of cysplatin but there are issues with hearing loss and people getting so sick that they don't even get to the third round. Sloan kettering says that it is an option, but they do the 3 cycles because that is what is documented to work. His doctors in Lehigh Valley offered both and we picked the weekly smaller doses thinking it would be better tolerated. He starts Tuesday. Please let me know if anyone has done the weekly cysplatin and how it went? Thank you in advance, you are all such a wonderful inspiration and a wealth of information.
