Hi. My 1st treatment FCR has been challenging to say the least. The actual treatment was what I expected after reading all your messages. The normal tiredness and just feeling unwell. I noticed a rash starting and it seen my consultant who said it was an allergy to the antibiotics I was given. So not only am I allergic to penicillin,I'm now adding cotrimoxasde. My itchy rash was getting unbearable so had an urgent appointment to see my consultant and unfortunately took unwell on way to hospital. A lovely couple helped me into hospital before I passed out on the pavement. It turns out I had some sort of toxic infection and was treated with steroids and different antibiotics and spent 2 days in hospital. I can't say enough about our NHS staff they where fantastic and understanding and so caring.
Today I start round 2 of FCR and feeling little apprehensive but reassured I will be monitored very closely. Xx
