Cisplatin is taken in IV form. I am sorry I can't answer any of your other questions. You can always post to the doctor on this forum.
Best of luck.
Thank you, I'm just interested. I guess I'll have to take the time to do an internet search since no one wants to share. But that's quite alright. I haven't been diagnosed with ovca, I'm just interested in treatments. Maybe I'll see some in clinicals. Maybe I'll work in oncology. Maybe not. I won't know till I get there.
I am cancer free from PMP with surgery alone. There is also a history of brain tumors in my family and I was searching specifically for people who had brain tumor history. In my family, three of my maternal grandfather's siblings died in their fifties from brain tumors. I was diagnosed with PMP at age 54, received no chemo, and was declared cancer free 6 months later. I am still cancer free three years later.
Anyway, is Casplatin a pill or an IV chemo??
its given through IV and makes you sicker than a dawg...
as for the radiation. yes it could burn the skin, cause hair loss etc it all depends on how much your getting and how often your getting it.
