  • Hi Rose, I had to have my Carboplatin stopped after reaction on 4th then the same on 5th, so none on the 6th, just gemcitabena. am now on Avastin for maintenance. I am doing fine on this 3 weekly infusion. keep thinking good thoughts and all will be well, hugs from Jeanette x

  • Thank- you and God Bless

  • Hi Rose. I had a reaction to Carbo and switched to Cisplatin with no problems x

  • Thank-you it gets scary,glad yours went well.

  • rosebud12, I've had carbo/taxol, then cisplatin/taxol, and then carbo/taxol again. The cisplatin side effects are similar, but with Cisplatin I noticed my vision got worse and my sinuses were so dried out that they bled if I sneezed. However, I am currently NED, so I have no complaints!!!! Tesla

  • Hi Rosebud,I too had a reaction.Chronic itch during infusion,I was put on steroids for the rest of the treatment.My Onc told me it's a usual reaction when your put on Thor carbo a 2nd time, so I wasn't overly worried.Enjoy the rest of your weekend 😀

  • Mum had mild reaction to 5th cycle of 2nd line carbo, the stronger reaction to 6th cycle. She's just had first cisplatin and had no reaction. I did a bit of googling and it seems there is no relationship between having a reaction to carbo , and having a reaction to cisplatin. I hope it goes well for you on Wednesday

  • Thank- you everyone for your help, God Bless!
