I had my treatment on Tuesday and I am taking taxotere, carbiplatin and herceptin and for the first time (2nd session and #3 treatment out of 5) my blood pressure was very low. They gave me fluid through my IV after treatment and it brought it up some but was still low when I left to go home. Due to the treatment my head was hurting so I slept for a while and when I woke up and help my niece with dinner and dishes I was freezing cold that I was shaking. My finger tips on both hands turn numb and I could not get the numbness to go away. Still feeling very tired and cold I went back to bed and had 3 blankets on me. I was cold all night long. Woke up today with a headache off and on and no longer cold and the numbness went away in my fingers but I feel very tired with no energy and weak. The nurse thought it was due to my anti-depression med,lexapro, but I have been taking them since April and this has never happen before. Have any of you had this happen to you? Should I also wait and see how it goes on my next treatment before contacting my doctor?
