I have only had one course of my new chemo - Cisplatin and Gemcitibane and already it is causing havoc with my body. The blood count was too low on Wed to have my chemo and for the past 3 days I have been experiencing bleeding problems from the nose, which for the past 16 hours, have been pretty consistent. I didn't initially take any notice, as nasal problems are a side effect of Avastin and I have been suffering with these for a couple of years. But after web checking the side effects of Cisplatin, I realised nose bleeds was a side effect.
I have been to my GP and she has packed the nose with a dressing soaked in a cauterizing drug and has also taken bloods to get the levels of the bloods. My hospital never give me these, but I think from now on I shall insist on having them everytime.
