Re: chemotherapy brain tumor

hi, i'm curious how this has been going since Feb? i started the same regime last month (with carboplatin added once a month for good measure) and it has been really tough for me: lots of sickness, lots of missed work. i had an MRI yesterday and i'll find out tomorrow if it has been effective. whenever i get really sick i try to be encouraged that is evidence of how potent it is working against the cancer.
