      I went to ent and they confirmed what I had been saying. My oncologist now wants to use a different chemo (taxol). It will be administered weekly for 6 weeks, extending my treatments 3 more weeks.

      I got tinnitus after cisplatin and it doesn’t go away so since it’s louder now and I am constantly cupping my hand behind my ear to try to hear better, I’m going to get me a hearing aid...as soon as I save up 5k $.

      KB2013 checkout hearing aids at Costco, if you have one near you. I found them to be the most reasonable. Certainly not 5K. Good luck.

    Today I start radiation and chemo therapy. These weeks leading up to this have been a challenge for someone who has never been sick. With all the surgeries, biopsies, bloodwork, sleepless nights and the unknowns. The fight back starts today.
