Nova Posted May 23, 2007 Share Posted May 23, 2007 Harry's next round of chemo should be starting around the 8th of June, They've switched him to Carboplatin and Etopocide, instead of the Cisplatin (sp?) and Etopocide. Will it still take 6 hours to administer the Carboplatin, like it did the other? The Etopocide (which is given to him on Saturday and Sunday), only takes about an hour. The other, (given on Friday), used to take about 6 hours. Makes for a very long day at the cancer center. Just wondering how many books and crossword puzzles to pack! Also, the doctor told us he should have less nausea with the new chemo. Anyone with experience switching from the Cisplatin to Carboplatin? Thanks. Hope you're all feeling well today!
