Topic: General Discussion - Update on Jeff - night sweats?
Jeff has finished his first round of chemo with Xeloda and Oxaliplatin. Everything went well. He starts round 2 next Friday.
He is experiencing some fatigue and has had more pain in his side recently. He is able to rest when he needs to, even at work. His employer is being and has been very supportive.
He recently started to experience chills and night sweats. He has never had night sweats before. His T-shirt and sheets are drenched some mornings. This seems to happen about once or twice a week for him. Has anyone else experienced this?
We had to reschedule our second opinion with the doctor at USC so that we could get all of the appropriate records and films sent over. We now have this set for the 9th.
We did have some good news recently. On 10/17 he had both an upper and lower GI endoscopy. Both were "clean as a whistle". No tumors, no suspicious lesions. We had gotten to the point of dreading every diagnostic test for fear of bad news. You know, it is nice to hear something good for a change.
As usual, Jeff continues to maintain his cheerful disposition.
Please keep Jeff in your thoughts and prayers.
