Kneesaa Posted February 7, 2009 Share Posted February 7, 2009 Hi Friends, Thought you would all get a stir out of what happened to me on Thursday. I went for my second round of chemo. I had already received the bag with the Avastin and the Taxotere. Thrid bag was the Carboplatin. I had received about one third of the dose. The Cancer Center where I receive my treatments is a bright pleasent place with a lot of chatter and cookies going around at all times. The man in the chair next to me was just finishing up his treatment and the nurse was helpinmg him to lowere the recliner. Just as the foot rest hit the floor, my chemo bag exploded and as I looked up the chemo was raining down on me. Of course it had nothing to do with the guys recliner, it was just the timing. Talk about excitment. I got a little in my eye and it splashed all over my face. All they could do was throw me a wet wash cloth until they could get their gear on to come near me and unhook me to get me to the eye wash station. The scariest part is that the nurse that happened to be walking by had the finish taken right off the watch she was wearing. My face and eye survived and now I am the talk of the center. Only me could this happen to. I had to go back on Friday to finish treatment with a guess on how much to give me. I was just very greatful that they didn't make me go out in the parking lot and get squirted off . I had to have my clothes put in a haevy bag and was instructed to wash them in very hot water Can you imageion calling my husbad and telling hime to bring me new clothes and a coat with all the excitment going on in the background????? Good sign or bad? We are laughing today. Hugs to you All, Kneesaa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
