      After that reaction your Doc should be talking to you about alternate meds. If he/she doesn't ask what else you can be trying. If your Doc doesn't give you any options absolutely need to get another opinion. Remember they work for you, just like a contractor, they should always have options and be willing to talk to you about them. Good luck.

      Hugs and healing vibes. Speak with your oncology team, if fact I am suprised they haven't talked to you about this while you were recuperating, about what alternative treatment options there are. I know that my team and I have discussed options when side effects have derailed my plan.
