Into the Rabbit-Hole pt. II

Just saline for the fist hour and a half or so, since the Cisplatin is very hard on the kidneys. Then the Gemcitabine and finally they'll finish the treatment today with another 1.5l bag of saline.

The Cisplatin is the evilest of the two drugs in my opinion, with potential to cause hearing loss, numbness in the fingers and toes and kidney damage. I can deal with tiredness, hairloss and nausea, but I'd like to emerge from this with the ability to still play and hear music. And to stay off dialysis. Again, I'm doing my best to stay positive.
