Victory for Cisplatin

Well after my moaning about the side effects of Cisplatin I have had an amazing result. My CA125 was around 900 before and after only 1 treatment it has dropped to 342. I don't think its been as low as that for well over a year. Plus results from my recent CT scan shows all cells, soft tissue tumour and fluid have all shrunk.

I reported to my Oncologist about my terrible vomitting and nausea and she has given me a stronger anti-sickness table. I think its called Prepitant. You take one an hour before chemo and then one on day 2 & day 3. So I am hoping they work for me next time.

So glad to hear you're good report, Tina. My husband had his first round of cisplatin on Friday. He is doing great and will see his dr. on Tuesday. We're on many prayer lists and adding you to ours. I'll check this site often.

Just checked in while having a marvellous holiday to see your great news. So thrilled for you! Hoping the anti nausea meds are helping too.

My next chemo has been delayed as I went on holiday. It will be another week before I can have my next infusion. At the moment I am feeling really good - no nausea :) Cos my cancer has shrunk I have been able to introduce fibre back into my diet. I am really enjoying my life at the moment.

Much love to everyone xxxxxx
