We are officially on the bus. They changed the plan for us and have decided against 3 high dose cisplatin in favor of 7 weekly low dose cisplatin. My husband has always had hearing loss and ringing in one ear since he was nine. They didn't want to risk it with high doses they couldn't take back or change course as easily. So....yesterday he got got his first dose. At 1am he felt like his thumb and two fingers were numb and he had lost grip strength. In the morning, it was totally normal. We told the RN at his rad appt. They will just watch him to see what develops. I know peripheral neuropathy is a potential side effect but it was only on one hand....not tingly, hot or both hands. Has anyone had experience like this?
