  • My cisplatin tattoo!

    Hey guys,

    To celebrate 2.5 years cancer free (after BEPx3) and having a new IVF baby (woohoo!!), I just got a cisplatin tattoo!!

    It helped save my life and so many of us here...

    What do you think?

      Nice. One day I'm going to get a Rod of Asclepius tattoo I think. Probably on my chest though, so it is seen when someone sees my rplnd scar.

      6/16/15: Left I/O 85% EC, 10% chorio, 5% yolk sac opinion 2 (mayo) 90% EC, 10% yolk sac
      7/7/15: bHCG 56, AFP 42, LDH 322
      7/13/15: begin 4xEP, end 9/18/15
      10/1/15: bloodwork normal, ct scan shows 2 lymph nodes 1.0cm
      10/26/15: 2nd opinion on CT results - lymph nodes normal. Surveillance!
      4/6/16: 1.7cm X 1.5cm lymph node found with markers normal.

              Maybe, although I'm not sure how well scar tissue tattoos!
