Has anyone else gone thru desensitization protocol so they could continue with a chemo drug they had an allergic reaction to?
I am on first recurrence as platinum resistant. So only 3 months after my first 6 chemos here I go again.
First time around had severe anaphylaxis reaction to only two drops of Taxol so switched to gemzar/carboplatin. Now gyn/enc wants Doxil/Avastin but I had allergic reaction to the Doxil although not as severe as the Taxol. I am going to go thru desensitization protocol which is supposed to be a quick way to make my body accept the Doxil with out so much allergic reaction. I have researched about it, understand the basic procedures, trust all my docs but still nervous. Allergic to a lot of things that should have finished me off long ago lol, so never like the idea of playing around with it.
Anyone else that has gone thru this?
