Katy66 Posted July 22, 2009 Share Posted July 22, 2009 Gene had his first chemo after a 2 week break/pneumonia recovery yesterday and ended up having an allergic reaction to the carboplatin. It was actually pretty mild and he is having a surprisingly good day today. There was a snafu with us getting him back to the right person for tx after the reaction but it got handled pretty quickly. They actually told us to wait in the lobby and I had a little "fit" with them. His chemo nurse heard me and come out to take us back but wasn't happy that the front desk told us to wait. Apparently they need some education on how bad the reactions COULD be if untreated. Anyway, just wondering if any of you had the same thing and what chemo they went to next. Nurse told us to keep next weeks appt and we would see what the ONC says but if nothing else he would probably do the taxol alone. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
