    It is one of the side effects that my 17 year old has, besides nausea, and Bleo redness/rash. His comes and goes, but from cycle 1, he has had it.

      I had 2xbep the ringing started in about the end of the first cycle and i told the doctor. it become very strong in the beginning of the second cycle and the doctor increased the time for the infusion of the cisplatin. i cant really recall the timeframes but lets say that i was having the cisplatin in 2 hours and they increased the time to 4-5 hours (by reducing the infusion rate to the vein). this helped somehow. the ringing stayed for months but reduced in strength (or at least i got used to it). now about 2 years later i really rarely hear it and much less pay attention to it.

        I still have ringing three months post chemo, but it's only happening sometimes and it's much better, doesn't really bother me anymore! Hopefully it gets better with time.

            I had a couple of seconds of loud ringing early on during chemo a few times a day, then towards the end of 4xBEP it became a more constant light hum. Still got it a month after chemo. Gets annoying in bed at night when you lie there "listening" to it.
