How wonderful Rick has done so well on cisplatin. My husband's doc has finally started using the 3 hr. Gemzar infusion and it seems much better so far. Been hoping he would try cisplatin for months, but he thinks it would have too many side effects; so I plan to tell him about the good experience you folks have had. Also, I read on one website about alternative medicine and saw where taking milk thistle prevented kidney problems with cisplatin. One place said results with animals but believe another one didn't say animals. John has been taking milk thistle to help prevent damage from the acetaminophen in his pain medication but I've never been sure how much he should take.
