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. The reason for the bad side effects are due to Cisplatin being stronger than Carboplatin. They try not to give it because of that reason, but when someone is allergic to Carboplatin then they give Cisplatin. I told her I don't mind the side effects now because it is kicking "Cancer's ass!!!!!"
