With cisplatin .CCNU and vincristine for 8 cycles 6 weeks apart from every cycle 

After first cycle . It gone good

So decision to decrease cisplatin to half 

After 3rd cycle he had grade 2 ottotoxcity in one ear . Still grade one in the other and deteroriation in kidney function . Aim really anxious about his hearing and kidney healthy . Aim fear that maintance therapy will affect his further quality of life . Had read some papers about uncertainty of effectiveness of chemotherapy espacially in WNT activated pathway medulloblastoma  R0M0 . I appreciate sharing experiance about chemo side effects as i read that damge to hear and kidey will be irreversible .
