I just tried to have my second treatment on chemo. At my cancer center, when Taxol is started, it is dripped very slowly for 20 minutes and then the rate is increased. As soon as the rate was increased, I got really red and itchy and my heart rate dropped. The nurses were there in a second and took care of everything, but it was really a scary feeling.
I tolerated the carbo fine.
My doctor thinks we should try it again with a slow drip.
I have grade 3, stage 2 endometerial cancer, adenocarcinoma (sp?)
Has anyone else had any reactions? I value your opinions very much. I do not want to die from the blasted chemo.
