Hi:. Wise, experienced, teal ladies:l
Lowered oxygen saturation – from pulse/ox reader heart rate + 160 full face flush tight chest
Nurse immediately stopped infusion – gave me sublingual Benadryl & oxygen- I started relaxation breathing & the heart rate settled down This T x was 8-9th – standard reaction time
Current Status ---CA125= 15No evidence of disease from most recent CT scan
Debulking Oct 29/13 – very successful- This Tx was 4th of the 6 for post debulking to get any nasty little cancer cells still in the peritoneal cavity before they can grow up to be tumors.
I’m quite distressed over this – I so wanted to complete the protocol. Tx’s & go into” wait & see” mode- getting a break from chemo & having exams at intervals decided by my gyne/onc LIKE WINNING THE GOLD MEDAL OF CANCER TX ---my chemo nurse is the only person I’ve talked to yet & she tried to be very reassuring altho I like confirmation from several sources. Reminded me I’ve had no problem with paclitaxel “yet”not sure when I can see a doc – but may have to phone as I’m a worrier tried googling info- but it was too technical for me. I read – might be able to
Have more Carbo – being prepared for reaction & subsequent measures to lesson/ stop reaction and tha tyou can change platins etc.
Your experiences please for anyone that has time
