Had chemo yesterday I have it every Mon. I was on carboplatin in the beginning and started having reactions to it so they had to stop it about a month ago. Put me on a sister drug called sicplatin. Well Last Mon, I had a reaction to that too. Now what? I don't know. The Dr says as soon as they can get my ins in the computer I can go on perjeta. Then I won't need to be on any of the platins. I am also waiting to get a port back in. They haven't wanted to do it because of my respiratory problems. But I am breathing much better now. Hardly use oxygen at all anymore. And my poor arm is getting sore and hard to get a IV in because of scar tissue. ( Ouch )I don't see the sergeon until the 26Th for the port. I guess he is booked up because of the holidays. So I have two more weeks at least to have them try and get a IV in my arm again. Yippee.. Are any of you ladies on perjeta yet? What do you think of it. Side effects?? I was told it really don't have to much in the way of side effects. I guess all we can do is keep on going. You are all in my prayers as always.
