Re: Allergic to rocephrin
Grace, I did not get any hives but when they inserted the PICC line and loaded the 2 gram syringe, the nurse pushed the meds in as fast as she could...I said "Whoah" I don't think we should infuse so fast, in the past I infused over a half hour."
She said "oh no, we do it this way all the time."
And I started to get a very bad taste in my mouth, then my heart felt heavy, then I felt like a wheezing in my lungs, then I felt like I had a heavy urge to caugh and I told her to stop. I told them I was going to be sick and they ran for a cup.
If I infuse slowly I seem to be ok. You said you are infusing over a period of hours?
