I got up early this morning as I had a blood test between 8:30 and 9:00. Kieran was going to go out but after he rang his friend, he was disappointed to find out he wasn't going after all. He found this really hard to deal with and got quite angry with my washing basket.
I went out to the hospital, it was emptying down, had the blood test done, no B12 jab. I would be seeing Dr D in the afternoon so would try and remember to discuss this with him.
I went home, still raining, even worse than when I came out of the house. I got some lunch for Kieran and myself and then had a bit of quiet time before setting off again.
I set off for the hospital again at around 1:40 pm for my 2:00 pm appointment. The weather was a lot better, even a little sun shine peeping through. I went in the room with Dr D, he told me he wanted me to be honest so I was. He knew I had the allergy to Cisplatin on the Thursday I had the chemo. I explained to him that I went into A and E on the Saturday with breathing difficulties. He was puzzled by this as he said the Cisplatin should have been out of my system. Still puzzled, he said the Dr in A and E should have given me steroids as well as the piriton. So what do we do now, he was suggesting to dose me up with anti histamine and hydrocortisone but after thinking about it, felt the risk was too high as I was getting an anaphylaxis reaction. Dr D rang the ward to tell them he wants to use Carboplatin, I was so pleased as I had suggested it and he was unsure. The bloods were good, white cells were down a little but not enough to warrant a transfusion.
