This has been a bad week since Sunday. First the vision problems. Had some abdominal tenderness starting on Sunday, too. Thought it was from the constipation. I don't usually have problems with constipation. MOnday and Tuesday I was sooo tired, and cold. Wendesday I checked my temperature becuase my husband said I felt warm. I did have a fever and was able to get it down with drinking lots of fluids. It was down all day Thursday and went back up Thursday night. I still had a temp Friday morning, so I went to see the onocologist. I was afraid I would have to go to the hospital, and I did.
My WBC was 2.0. It really dropped since my chemo. The onocologist said that is not unusual after radiation. I was really surprised that it dropped that much. I am getting Neupogen every day to bring up the WBC count. I am also on 3 different antibiotics. That part is scary for me as I have so many allergies, and I have not had any of these drugs before. Hope I tolerate all of them.
My fever has not been above 100 today, so I am feeling much better tonight. I just hope the hospital stay is not too long. Had a CAT scan tonight, blood cultures, urine cultures, and a chest x-ray. Hope they come back negative.
After the next chemo they will give me Neulasta a day after chemo, to hopefully keep this from happening again.
Hope all is well with all of you.
