- Avastin and low potassium
I was put on Lasix twice to try to get rid of the swelling in the calf and foot of my left leg--then another water pill. Neither was successful. Recently I saw my geriatric doctor who examined the results of recent blood work. He asked me if anyone told me my potassium was low. Then said Lasix could cause that. ? Now I read that Avastin can cause that as well.
This is the second side effect that could be from Avastin.
I'm a type 2 diabetic who has had one blood clot in that leg. What, exactly is happening to that leg? Am in danger of having it amputated?
No doctor has provided me with enough information. I don't think my geriatric doctor knows. My podiatrist said I had a weak pulse in that leg when I told him it had not been checked in two years!
- Ceftriaxone reynolds syndrome & tenditis
Ceftriaxone intravenous, after a week hypokalemia hospital visit waited a week went back to the CDC physician he said that drug had nothing to do with it. I am allergic to 99% of antibiotics I can only take a z-pack for two weeks and then run into allergic reactions. We started back on the Cefriaxone as soon as it entered my system heart pain burning sensation every nerve had to be iced. Also the Reynolds was so bad my hands turned white the blue numb. Now pain in wrist and upper arm. The cdc physician knew I was allergic why!
- Velcade side effects
I have developed testicular pain after only seven injections of velcade,for my multiple myeloma. I am going to try to get my dosage of velcade reduced. I never had a problem in this area until this chemo medicine. I hope this helps other patients as my doctor never has heard of this side affect.
