Topic: fever between chemo treatments
Has anyone had any experiecnce with fever between chemo treatments? my mom did the last CT scan two weeks ago, and since she had fever on and off (around 102 degrees). It goes down during the days, but usually comes back at night.
Also, we are suppose to start a new protocol of chemo (gemzar and xeloda) + Avastin. Has anyone faced the dilema of giving treatment while the patient has fever? is that possible? the doctors dont know what is the source to this fever (her blood count is normal, and there is no other evidence of inflamation). It has been 4 weeks since the last treatment and in the first couple of weeks (before the CT scan) she didn't have fever at all.
