1st chemo session

I had my first chemo session of FOLFOX 6 on DEC 17.  Everything was great for first 36 hours.  Then at 230 am i began having horrible chest pain.  I was transported to the hospital to cardiac unit.. cardiologist said my ejection fraction was at 14% when normal is over 55. I am being treated for stage 3c colon cancer.  Has anyone experienced this after only one session of chemo? Need advice.  BTW...merry christmas to everyone.

Thanks god severe reactions like yours are not common. You really have to follow up on this since you need more chemo. Follow the doctors' advise. I have minor chest discomfort during my chemo, but not that serious and mainly caused by muscle tightness.

I wish you a quick resolution.
