Paul is having some lingering side effects this time from the chemo. In addition to the "normal" fatigue and feeling like crap, he has an annoying ringing in his ears and a slight hearing loss. This is a side effect from the Cisplatin. He will have his hearing checked next week...they are hoping the damage is not permanent... His kidneys seemed to be a little unhappy this go around as well (also side effect of Cisplatin). We will see what the blood results show next week.
Here are pictures of Paul having his chemotherapy removed. He will probably be leaving his port in for an additional three months...until the next scan...
