Am I just unlucky? The start of the FCR went so well, though I was breathless from the first dose of Rituximab. That went worse as time went on and my heart felt like it was labouring. I constantly had palpitations for two weeks and even a blackout
Went to my GP last Monday, who sent me to local hospital for blood tests. Turns out I was dangerously anaemic and neutrophils 0.2. Needless to say I am still in hospital, having antibiotics through drips every day and irradiated blood transfusion last night. Also filgrastin (?) injections each day to boost neutrophils. This is week three though, I should be able to enjoy this week and next week and instead I’m stuck in solitary confinement. Next FCR in 10 days or so, when it’s all downhill again.
Anyone else had this reaction and did it happen every time?
