... 4 last week called emts he awoke with severe pain could not take deep breaths. Hospital kept him overnight, oncologist pa said pnenomia than internist said no.he was released and treatment started again
Did the doctors send him home with antibiotics or steroids? If he does not receive a pre-infusion coctail (IV) of benadryl and ranitidine, it might be a good idea to ask his oncologist about giving the pre-meds. All of the symptoms you have mentioned are common with Torisel, but should be reported to his oncologist. I encourage you to read the info provided by drugs.com regarding Torisel:
My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
