I was just accidentally splattered with liquid PO CellCept (a cytotoxic drug requiring chemo gloves when administering). I would guess that about 25 mg got onto my face and into my mouth. I immediately rinsed my face and mouth. I am also 11 weeks pregnant. Unfortunately occupational health at my hospital was not very helpful.

I am worried about my baby. Does anyone have any thoughts about this? Thank you.

Contact the manufacturer and also look at their website. Also schedule an appointment with your primary physician, who should be separate from the hospital physician that you should also see. make sure that you file a written report with your hospital as well.

You should definitely do an incident report ASAP if you haven't already.

The next person to contact is your primary OB. S/he is the one best able to assess your risk and advise you as to a plan of care. Beyond that, we really can't give medical advice, or tell you what to do. But I do feel your anxiety; I got my head, neck, and chest irradiated (CT and CXR) after a bad wreck early in my first trimester and it scared me to death. Best wishes to you.
