Oxiplatin....can’t take anymore!
I haven’t been posting much on here of late. But when my two lung nodules refused to go despite Cyberknife my oncologist decided the best course of action was six cycles of Folfox/Oxiplatin. Well the first cycle landed me in hospital for a week with what medics initially thought was Sepsis, but subsequently proved to be no more than a bad reaction to the chemotherapy together with a secondary infectioni. Second cycle laid me low for eight days as indeed did cycle 3. But cycle 4 really caused problems with agitation and confusion being rife to the extent that my GP now has me on Diazapan which is helping.... but of course I can’t drive and am permanently spaced out but that’s beats the blind panic I suffered before.
Having got to cycle 4 I’ve decided not to endure any further cycles of this chemo.
I just wonder if anyone else has suffered at the hands of Oxiplatin. Any help or advice gratefully received. Good luck to you all. John2628
