I am on my second line taxol/carbo after being diagnosed with recurrance in lymph glands. All previous 1st line carbo treatments were fine, and the 1st this 2nd line was ok but yesterday had my second treatment and after about 30 mins suffered rash on hands,arms,neck and face and also had severe heartburn/indigestion. Onc was contacted and she said treatment to be stopped for yesterday and that I was to be given steroids to take at home before my next treatment ie 10 tablets on evening before and 10 on the morning. Carbo would then hopefully continue.
Has anyone else had this kind of reaction then given these extra pre meds? Did they work and if not what happened with the Carbo side of things. Luckily Taxol infussion went ok which is the one I always worry about !
