Reaction to Taxol

My father received his first dose of Taxol yesterday and had a bad reaction. Short of breath, flushing of head and neck and severe back pain. They treated him with IV steroids and oxygen and let him recover for over half hour then restarted at a slower rate. Has anyone else experienced this? He is going to receive it again next week.

Hi. I am from the Ovarian Cancer board. I had my first Taxol about 6 weeks ago and had a reaction. Same as your Dads. The next week I was fine. I was told that it is very common to have a reaction your first time. Good luck.
