    Long story short- I am on a chemo pause due to leg weakness. Checked in yesterday to a rehab facility. You can’t be on chemo and have Medicare pay for physical therapy in a rehab facility.

    If rehab goes well, MO will talk about next treatment. If not, probably looking at hospice in near future.

    Hi, all. I had IV taxotere 15 years ago (my initial, Stage I diagnosis). On the third of six infusions, I had a severe allergic reaction. Going forward (including that day), I was given diphenhydramine (Benadryl) and the speed of the chemo was slowed down.
