I was DX with MMMT/Carcinosarcoma 3C1 after hysterectomy on April 30, 2012. I started chemo on June 14 but had reaction to Taxol (severe back pain that was like being hit with an axe in the lower back). I had the Carbo and that went just fine. My next chemo was July 5th when we tried the 24 hr infusion of watered down Taxol but with the same reaction. It just took an hour instead of 5 minutes to get the severe back pain. My onc says it is considered a "mild reaction" compared to anaphylactic shock & death. He has suggested continuing with just the Carbo or trying Taxotere/Docetaxel. Anyone else have this reaction/allergy? Any suggestions?
