Ear problems - chemo related?
Hello awesome people,
So I had my 4th round of xelox just under 2 weeks ago. For the past few days on and off I’ve been getting a mild blocked feeling in my left ear. I can still hear but it feels blocked. I’ve tried that pinching your nose and blowing manoeuvre and I can hear things “unblocking” but it doesn’t last.
This did happen for a few days during the last cycle but it disappeared after a few days so I didn’t mention it to the team.
I did a bit of research and read that platinum based chemo can cause ear problems... was just curious if anyone else had something similar and any advice on relieving it...
I’m due to see my gp next week if it doesn’t go.
