Hey Audra. Sorry for the delay and confusion in answering your inquiry. I
hope your dad is tolerating the cisplatin. My mom had very few side effects
when it was combined with Gemcitabine. She lost a little hair, felt tired
and was a little queazy once. Her weight was stable. Her white counts
dropped, but not low enough to discontinue treatment. The biggest problem
was that it stopped working after 8 infusions (4 cycles) -- i.e., some of
the lymph nodes began to grow again and her pain returned. Hope that help and
you have better results than we did. k
