My father had radiation that overlapped his docetaxel treatments. He got very sick from it. Developed rash, fever of 101.3. Lost 24 pounds blood count below 2900 and very low iron and potassium to the point of blood transfusions and hospitalization. The dr said was the combo of two radiation and chemo. Well fast forward we are on round 4 and I'm afraid happening again. He developed rash and fever again. Dr had said radiation should be out of his system. He gets the docetaxel every 20 something days. Anybody out there with this type of reaction to docetaxel? I cant convince my father to get second opinion. Stubborn man.
