Hi Ladies, Well todays news regarding the drama re chemotherapy drugs being contaminated in some Irish hospitals is scary. I attend one of the hopitals mentioned and had treatment on October 1st without any extra side effects so I imagine I have nothing to worry about. No one will name the particular drug or if it was the actually stuff they use to dilute it to the necessary strength. Then again, we dont know if it is just infusions or tablet form. I trust my hospital to contact me if my drug is affected. So unless you are contacted, I expect us ladies are okay. If in doubt, do contact your oncology unit. Hope everyone has a nice weekend, the weather is getting that bit cooler and we will be dragging out the winter woollies.
