I have a question that I hope someone can give me some info about.
My husband has prostat cancer and has spread to the bones. He is on zometa, caodex and lupron. In the last month he is having fever almost everyday. from 99-102(mostly 100.2) the dr. at mskcc have taken blood, urin, chest xray and cultures. Every thing came back neg. they cannot find anything wrong. If anyone else has had a similar experence or has a answer I would appreciate it. They are thinking of starting him on chem next because his psa is slowly on the rise. but his other signs are fine. We are going to mskcc on 4/12 hopefully they can give some answers too. He is also only 58.
Thank You and G-d bless

My husband also has a problem with fever. His pc has spread to the bones too. The doctors said it is "tumor fever" because he also had many tests that came back negative. He has had lots of radiation, chemo and has now decided to not have any more chemo since the doctors have said it is not doing any good. I'll keep watching for answers about fever too.
