    Cisplatin/Alimta Experiences?

    Hi. Hopefully I can shed a little light on this combo for you. I had four rounds of this combo when I was 47 - never lost my hair. I had nausea, tinnitus, and neuropathy in my feet. I took my chemo on Fridays and, with the steroids, felt pretty good until Sunday when the nausea would kick in. Super Doc prescribed two different anti-nausea meds that I could overlap so that really helped. That's not to say that I didn't have barf bags in my car and at work just in case. Thankfully, I never needed them. The ringing in my ears has stuck with me, along with the neuropathy. But that could also be attributed to a round of carboplatin and Taxol last year. You might want to check out chemocare.com - it has some great information regarding drugs and side effects. Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have more questions.
