Re: Docetaxel allergic reaction

I too had an allergic reaction to Docetaxel..It didn't happen until my second treatment.The nurses and doctors were amazing and very quickly dealt with the issue.For my third and final Docetaxel the dose was monitored and given much more slowly  All went well..I hope all goes well with you..xx

Re: Docetaxel allergic reaction

I'm glad you didn't have further reactions to deal with, that's certainly reassuring for me too.
I'm very nervously awaiting the side effects today. So far ok still.
Congrats on finishing chemo, must be quite a triumphant feeling?

Re: Docetaxel allergic reaction

Hi Xena, I had my last Docetaxal over a month ago, chemo all finished now!😊 I only had that one reaction at the very start on it, a horrible feeling came over me within minutes, felt completely out of it, hard to describe really, I was in no pain, they then for the next 2 treatments slowed the drug right down which helped, even though it took a lot lot longer. I had invasive grade 3 cancer, I had a mastectomy before chemo with immediate implant, started tamoxifen last Friday, now trying to get on with this new type of normal life.😊xx

Docetaxel allergic reaction

Hi everyone, after finishing my first EC chemo infusions, had my first Docetaxel chemo last Friday, within a few minutes of the drug, had a strange feeling come over my body, felt so spaced out and dizzy thought I was going to pass out! The nurses stopped the drug straight away and have me hydrocortisone and antihistamine, within mins I felt better, they were going to try a again and slow the drug down, but because there was no oncologist on site they didn't want to risk it, so had to go home, so disappointed as had been there already a few hours, also had the cold cap on. Was told to come back next week, they are going to try again and give me drugs before hand to counteract, just hope it works, they seem hopeful it should. Has anyone else experienced this?xxx
