I was treated with Cisplatin and everything he said was exact.  Especially the nerve damage its been almost 10 years since I had treatment..  I wake up every morning with the feeling of bones rotting from my skin.. No Lie.. It takes every bit of belief in my self to get moving every day.. Atleast im still here to feel that pain i guess..
