They have removed the tumor and are starting radiation and chemo next week. They will do 28 doses of radiation (daily for 5 weeks) along with Cisplatin once a week, then follow with another kind of chemo. Has anyone heard of this? Is there a place to research rare cancers? Has anyone else had this type of chemo and/or radiation? How bad were the side effects and what was life like while you were going through the treatment? Any information would be appreciated.

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
