I have been diagnosed with stage 4 endometrial ca, metastasis to liver, lung and an enlarged
lymph node. Went through 6 rounds of Taxol and Carboplatin over 4 months, and then in trial for 2 months, but Ca is back. Dr. wanted to start me on Doxil, and tried 1st dose today, but got a severe infusion reaction..extreme shortness of breath, chest tightening,
and redness and twitching. Infusion was stopped,and symptoms subsided after doses of benadryl and pepcid, and O2, but now Dr. wants me to try this medication again. Has anyone experienced this reaction, and able to stay on the med. It may be the only option left for me. Would love any words of advice. I'll have a discussion, of course, with my Dr. about this, and any other options. Thank you for listening. I'd appreciate any words you have to share.
