Went to my 5th carbo/taxol treatment on August 24th. I was coming down with a sore throat and cold that morning but they went ahead and did the infusion anyway. Cold lasted much longer than usual and I still have a cough and my ears have a lot of pressure and I can hear my heart beating in the right ear which is driving me crazy. So i called my dr and he prescribed the z pack antibiotic which kills bacteria infections and stays in the body for 10 days after taking the 6 pills. Still not feeling good today and called the dr again and they say call your regular physician (which since I am on medicaid they had assigned me a new regular physician) so I called him and they tell me they a re not seeing any new patients until late October and go to the emergency room. SO I head there this morning and it is full of people this being the day ofter a holiday weekend. So they give me blood work which is fine and a chest x-ray since I am coughing my head off (chemo cough is my guess) x=ray is fine so they prescribe me some different antibiotics and I am off to the drug store some 3 hours later after my arrival at the emergency room. The druggest said he can't fill my prescription because medicaid says it conflicts with medicine I am already taking and that I am already taking the z pack which is the same kind of antibiotic they had prescribed as new. So I am still having the ear problems. Anybody else ever had this problem?
