Hello to all
I had the 4th of 6 carbo/alimta treatments and just developed the shingles. I'm taking 1 gram of
Valacyclovir three times a day for 7 days.
I'm wondering about weather my 5th chemo should be delayed ?
Since there is always the danger of postherpatic neuralgia and other complications of the virus entering the brain and other organs , could continuing chemo raise the likelihood of developing these complications ?
What do you usually do in these cases where your patients develop shingles during therapy?
Thanks for your answer
