creekgirlsc Posted September 10, 2007 Share Posted September 10, 2007 Hello All..... I went for my first chemo today after having taken 20mg decodren at midnight & at 6 this am. At the chemo treatment they gave me 0.25 mg aloxi, 50mg zantac, 50mg benadryl, & 8mg decodren. We waited 1/2 hr. & then they did the Taxol. Within a few minutes I started seeing hundreds of little flashing white lights, developed bad pain in upper right chest & limbs changed color & I felt like I would pass out. Put me on oxygen, stopped the Taxol & started giving saline drip. After a couple of bags of that my blood pressure came up enough that they let me come home. I was amazed at how fast my doctor must be able to run because he was on the scene within a couple of minutes of being paged.(There was some talk of a hospital stay but we convinced the doc that if anything looked wonky my husband would take me to the nearest ER.) They want to switch me to something called Naveline combined with the carbo on Wednesday. Has anyone been treated with that? I have no one that I can ask about this as I don't know anyone else who has cancer. I could google it but would rather hear first hand experiences. I hate that all of you have to be here on the cancer messageboards but you sure are a blessing to me. Any info much appreciated.
