      If doctor is aware, then fine. If not, call! Normally, IV Benadryl is given to control reactions.

      Momma4t, as po18guy said---an allergic reaction may be life-threatening. Don't hesitate to call your doctor about an eye problem. It could be from anything.

      It took a good year before I felt human again. But I did have chemo and radiation which takes a lot out of you.
      Take things day by day. Eat healthy. Nap when you need it. Learn to say NO when others ask you to do things that you are not ready to do. Take care of yourself. And remember people over things.

      Two out of the 3 diagnoses I have had I received chemo for. In both of those, within a week after treatments stopped, I started feeling better. Nausea started going away, the constant shakes from the steroids stopped, some of the sores in my mouth started healing and more. The body just needs time to recuperate from all that it has endured over the treatment plan. Then again, I have some side effects that are still with me that were caused 30 years ago.
