My mom had her first Chemo (GemCarbo) treatment last Thursday. Over the weekend, she broke out in a horrible red itchy rash. I called her oncologist this morning and told her about it and she had me to bring mommy to the ER to be examined asap. Luckily she didnt have a fever or they would have kept her. They released her with sterioids and benedryl but she sees her oncologist tomorrow. She only had 30 mins of chemo and no other side effects but this rash. I am afraid that if the switch the treatment it will give her all ther other horrible symptoms......I'm feeling so helpless. I wish I could go through this for her. She had on pants today that were too small for her a few months ago and they were practically falling down.
