I am being retreated for a reoccurence of Ovarian Cancer with Carboplatin single agent. I have previously had 8 carbo treatments for the first occurence( with taxol and Topotecan) and six treatments (carbo/taxol) for reoccurence after 2.5 years. My Dr. decided to do 6 treatments of Carbo alone after surgery and chemo
for the reoccurrence. The first treatment with carbo as a single treatment caused an allergic reaction which I would call mild ie (itchy hands and red palms). My bp went up about 20 points. The cancer center easily stopped the reaction but I am concerned about what is next. Has anybody had desensitization treatment? Can you descibe it? My Dr. doesn't seem to want to do it but it sounds like standard operating procedure in many places.
