My concern is that there seems to be evidence of patients that get to session 6 and then have a reaction to the carboplatin. My daughter knows one person with Ovarian cancer and had this happen. I've read articles talking about reactions at sessions 7 or 8 when going thru a recurrence. Can't find the article I previously read about 6th session reactions and percentages of increased reactions.
I will be going to my 5th chemo session next Thursday. I get Gemzar day 1 and 8 (due to an anaphylaxis reaction to Taxol at 2 drops on my first session with that). I also get carboplatin on day 1 only of each session.
*Have any of you had that occur?
*Do you know others that had reactions any session time after 4 or 5 sessions?
*Where can I find the statistics and increased percentages of occurrence so I can discuss this (with the research facts) further directly with my gynecologist /oncologist rather than just her assistant doctor assigned to me?
