Last week I had my first chemo, Paclitaxel, and had a severe allergic reaction 10 seconds in - that was NOT part of the plan! The oncologist wanted them to re-challenge but the nurses refused. I was told the oncologist would be in touch and that I'd be given oral steroids and then they'd try again with a slow drip at the oncology centre. But it's been almost a week and not a peep from anyone. I called my CNS yesterday, who emailed them. My oncologist is away so she spoke to a different one who wants to see me in clinic to reassess. I'm going nuts waiting to hear and wondering what 'reassess' actually means - are they going to abandon the chemo due to my reaction? Meanwhile my wound post op isn't healing very well, only a small patch under my wobbly bits, but the new oncologist wants to see it. Basically, feeling very impatient and abandoned, which is ridiculous, I know. In the last few weeks post op I've had constant calls and appointments and now nothing. I need chocolate.
