Topic: Various symptoms
Haven't posted lately, but look every day at this sight and the discussions. Needless to say, the information on the posts has been invaluable. Terry has been on a chemo regime of gem/cis since September. Two weeks on/one week off. He missed two separate weeks because of a low blood count. In the past couple of weeks he has had a fever ranging 99.9 to 100.0. We were told not to be concerned unless his temp goes up to 102 or higher. It only lasts a few hours. His temp has been good for the past week. One night he sweat profusely. Also the right side of his back has been giving a lot of pain. I use a massage wand and he says that helps. Also, he hates taking any pain medication, but will take an Advil once in a while. Yesterday he had a pet scan(this is the first one since all of this began). The doctor said there would be no reaction. Last night he was up from 3 am with a stomach ache. He actually took a nausea pill at 3 and 5 am. He's been taking a nausea pill every morning that has worked up til now. Since the chemo has started he has been very tired (normal, I know), but never nauseous. He hasn't had any chemo since 12/6. Whenever I say I want to call the doctor he says no. We do have an appontment with his chemo doctor next thursday for the results of the petscan. I guess I'm looking for some feedback. You guys are all great.
