2nd cycle done but now I have heavy cold / flu... grrrrrrr rant time!
Hello my fellow forumites,
Well, after having a week’s delay because of those pesky stomach cramps - which disappeared on Monday - hooray!
I started with a bit of a runny nose on Wednesday but that was my only symptom. Went for my Oxy infusion on Thursday and they were happy with my bloods and vitals so I did it - yay!
Well Thursday night and yesterday symptoms started to get worse and last night I had a temperature of 38.7 so didn’t take my cape last night and took paracetamol - which lowered the temp. Woken up this morning feeling like utter crap, temperature is fluctuating around 38 so decided not to take cape again and am in bed trying to sleep it off. Also just taken paracetamol again.
I’m in Milan and the chemo line is only open during the week office hours, same with my gp. I have a friend who is a doctor specialising in lung oncology and she said not to worry just to take paracetamol for temperature and only go to a&e if I had trouble breathing or if temp didn’t lower with paracetamol. Does this sound right to you guys?
I remember first cycle I felt zonked on the first Saturday so I’m sure that’s contributing...
I’m such a bad patient I just want to get up and be well grrrrrrrr!!!!
Luckily hubby is here and is helping out with little man.
Hope everyone’s doing ok, rubbish time for immune system issues 🙈
