    Has anyone ever had the constant ringing in your ears from cisplatin? my Dr said it might not
    ever go away. it has been 11 months since my last chemo, and my right ear has a high pitched ringing all the time.

    Celebration (Remission): just had my ct scan, and all is clear. i am free for 6 months until the next scan. still have to have blood work every 3 months. i see my onocologist next week to go over the ct scan, but i have gotten word of no new tumors. YEA!

    Side Effects (Anemia (low red blood cell counts)): almost all of the above. vitamin b12 finally helped with chemo brain and energy loss...

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): unlike the surgery, chemo put me down within two weeks. missed lots of work, was sick, lost weight. onocologist decided cisplatin was not leaving my body.
    had shots for low white blood and a wonderful transfusion for low red blood.
    took me until june 2012 to get over most of the chemo symtoms. still have a strong ringing in my right ear that won't go away.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): surgery to remove the lower lobe of right lung was a walk in the park. post op was smoothe i was able to be pro-active in healing which was wonderful
