    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I received Cisplatin and Platinum Etoposide - these treatments took approximately 8 hours to receive on a once every 3 weeks basis. It typically took about a week to recover - and by recover I mean being able to get up, shower, work a desk job for 6 hours and then come home to lay around until bed time then sleep all night. Extreme nausea - vomited at least 3 times a day. I did 7 rounds of this treatment and then after only a 20% decrease in my NET no further results. I stopped treatments at that point since they were not having any further affect and I was so ill.
