Hi all - I'm back again looking for advice. I have nsclc Stage IIIB - and just recently finished 22 treatments of radiation. As mentioned in a previous post, this is my 4th go around with cancer - all different types.
I went for a consult with my Oncologist yesterday and he advised that because I have a hearing loss and wear hearing aids - if I have chemotherapy the carboplatins (I think that's what he said) in the chemo would affect my hearing even more so making me completely deaf. I have not heard of this before - do I have any other options? Has anyone else had this problem?
Thank goodness for this site - I find I get more answers here than anywhere else!
