This question is in relation to infusions or Biologics. I recently had the second round of Rituxan. This infusion was done in two hours vs 5:1/2. The experience was horrific.
Question, I feel like I was physically assaulted. I finally caught the nurses attention to tell her my ears were burning. Her reaction was to tell me I could handle it. I literally cried through most of that infusion. I am now furious. Why was it rushed. I have had nothing but extreme drug reactions thus far. I want to know who decided to rush it and why. Should I contact doctor or jointeffort ? It cannot be in pharmacies best interest to rush it. Only risk potentially fatal reactions? So that leaves Doctor or nurse. Is nurse following protocol or a little passive aggressive? Should I let it go and just ensure it does not happen again? Or should I make an issue of it. I was looking up reactions and found an article stating four RA deaths were attributed to Rituxan! Clearly not a drug to be taken lightly? Does raising the issue compromise my health care moving forward?
