Each time I got Folfox IV I got constant runny nose and constant teary eyes for a few days. I thought it was the side effect of one of the medicins. Since the last Folfox I only have my PICC line flushed once a week with a 100cc saline and after each flushing I get this runny nose and teary eyes for days. Feels like allergy. In fact at the beginning of the first Folfox treatment during the saline I almost passed out, my blood pressure dropped, sweated. I searched and found that even though it's extremely rare, but there is such a thing as allergy to saline. With the upcoming surgery I'm concerned, because I'm sure I'll get a lot of saline.
Did any of you have runny nose and tears after saline or Folfox?
