I went this past Friday for my 7th treatment. I had all of the pretreatment cocktails all was good. Then the oxaliplatin and lucavorin was hooked up and within minutes I was in full on allergic reaction mode. I had hives throat closed chest tight sweats blood pressure dropped. Benadrly and epipen administerEd and a trip to the hospital via ambulance. I'm ok now but I missed my treatment and I now have to go to hospital for next treatment and try it again there. This time over 6-8 hrs very slowly got see if my body ca handle it that way. The call it desensitizing Has this happened to anyone else and has it worked?
