Had my first cycle yesterday and started to feel intense pain in my left forearm near where the drip needle was inserted towards the end of the 4.5 hour treatment (3 meds). Nurse wrapped my arm with a hot pad and I felt better. The pain went away once the treatment was over. However at night I started to feel the pain again, equally if not more intense and it wouldn't go away. A bit of rash as well. Couldn't sleep at all because of it. Called nurse and she said I might be allergic to carboplatin. Suggested I take some painkillers and use hot pads, but otherwise not much they can do about it.
Feeling deflated as its very annoying and of course painful! Painkiller doesn't seem to be helping much.
Has anyone experienced this before? What can I do to reduce the pain?
