    Hi AZ! With Testicular Cancer, the treatment that has been so successful includes extremely potent platinum based chemo (etopisid, cisplatin, bliomycin) given for 5 days straight, with a 21 day break, then 5 days again. It's been pretty rough!! Only 4 rounds can be given at most because it's really hard on the kidneys and there are potentially serious other side effects. In the future, we will have to switch to other chemo combinations since surgery is no longer an option, as would be extensive and not be able to remove all the remaining tumors/lymph nodes and unless it is ALL removed, chances of reoccurance exist.
