Hi all, so I two weeks ago I had my first lot of carbo / Caelyx for first reoccurrence felt rough for 10 days but really struggled with a rash that appeared across my side and left boob, put it down to a chemo reaction as all the literature I was given talked about skin changes. After stabbing pains in my back during the night I headed to the GP this morning who has diagnosed Shingles I'm gobsmacked!! It definatley explains why I had pains, and felt so very unwell. Felt a bit stupid for not going to the doctors earlier but with the litreture I really did think it was just usual side effects and didn't want to waste the docs time .
Talking it over with the GP it must of kicked in two days after the chemo was given.
Any ways I guess it's just another little hurdle to get over and something to be mindful of.
Love to all....
