I am getting close to the day I get my first taxol treatment - on Friday.
I have a concern. I heard they give you pre-meds the day before treatment, 10 steroids (WOW) to prevent allergic reaction? Anyhow, my Onco will not do this with me. I will simply go in on Friday, do my blood test, and wait to be called for my treatment. They will probably give me some premeds right before it. What was your exp.?
Also, is there anything I should prepare for prior to this treatment? (e.g. what pills to keep handy, skin meds, pain killers?).
Does the infusion time makes a difference? Can taking a longer time be better than shorter time or it doesn't make a difference?
Thanks for your feedback, and God bless you.
