Hi started on Carboplatin/Caelyx January 2018 (6 cycles).
First cycle went ok, second one knocked me off my feet. Oncologist decided to reduce treatment by 25% for third cycle to help me function. Also arranged for me to have magnesium and calcium infusions as these were very low.
Went to The Christie yesterday for bloods prior to fourth treatment Thursday. Yet again calcium, potassium and magnesium levels very low, so treatment has been put back a week whilst I take supplements to boost my levels. Consultants thinks it’s the Carboplatin that’s to blame, so is talking about stopping the Carboplatin and just having the Caelyx.
Just wondered if any of you ladies have been down this path, and did it make a difference?
Thanks for any help. 😀
