Anyone had/having/about to have Topotecan & Cisplatin combined?

I am about to start treatment for secondaries in liver and lung which spread from vaginal cancer. I'm told it will be Topotecan (I think - may be a slightly different spelling!), which I have never had, plus Cisplatin, which I had once before. It will be one 48 hour session every 3 weeks. I'd love to hear from anyone else who has had, is having or like me is about to have the same treatment. I have read up on the side effects, of course, but it's not the same as hearing from someone who has actually been there, done that, or is going through the same thing. I think I will miss the companionship of chemo as I am a British woman in France, so it would be nice to have someone "hold my hand" across cyberspace, someone with whom I could compare notes etc.!

My chemo starts 27th November. I look forward to hearing from you!
