I seem to be platinum resistant now. Having reacted to carboplatin and having had 6 rounds of cisplatin, I am to start caelyx next week. So any experience or advice would be useful. I did read up on it a while ago and it seems that some women sail through with few effects while some have severe side effects. I have had bad nausea with other chemo regimes so I'll be surprised if I don't get that but who knows ? The others have been platinum based and this is different so I may be lucky.
I was very low when I found that after the horrors of cisplatin and shrinkage at midway it had started growing again and is now on my liver. But then I received a reminder of my holiday - a certificate for a mammal identification weekend that I did in the middle, in Scotland, and I got a distinction. In was ridiculously pleased, it's only a basic course but I did enjoy it, and the rest of my holiday.
