This is my first post. Having had a lower right lobectomy in late December 2016, I am now 6 days into the first of four 3-week cycles of Vinorelbine and Cisplatin (VP) chemotherapy. I have suffered mild Tinnitus for the past 25 years without any real problems and discussed this with my Onc doctor. The choice seemed to be: risk worsening tinnitus with Cisplatin or numb fingers and toes with Carboplatin. Unfortunately the tinnitus has stepped up much earlier than I had hoped and I fear early progression to major hearing loss when it may not be necessary. I spoke with my Onc support nurse today who seemed to suggest that the Neuropathy side effects of Carboplatin are much less common than the hearing side effects of Cisplatin and although she couldn't advise outright, it was clear that she would recommend making the change. I know it is not possible to generalise on side effects but does anyone have any advise/experience on switching from Cisplatin to Carboplatin for these reasons or on numbness caused by Carboplatin?
