There is not actually such thing as being allergic to TKIs, just side effects. But the side effects can require intervention when they are serious. Also remember that the drugs do not always cause the condition.
It is hard to tell from your information whether this is a kidney shutdown or pleural effusion (fluid build-up around the lungs and heart). She should have the fluid around the heart removed by the doctor (thoracentesis) if that is an issue.
Additional information would help us answer your question more precisely.

Hi Worried Son,
I am so sorry about your mother,have they talked about draining fluid from her lungs I don't know what they do about fluid around the heart. I had a pleural effusion and they drained 2 liters of fluid from just my left lung the other lung was fine,I know in some cases draining the fluid is not the answer. I have cml and I take the tki sprycel when I got the pe I was taken off sprycel for 6 weeks and I'm fine now. I'm really glad they took her off tasigna, as soon as they removed that fluid I felt better immediately.
