Has anyone else experienced "tumor fevers?" I've been running a fever anywhere from 99.2 or so up to 101 for the last several weeks. Along with it, I get the usual aches and pains and all that. Plus one minute I'm chilled, and the next I'm sweating through my t-shirt! I'm on a 75mg patch of fentanyl, which manages the pain pretty well, and I'll take a Percocet to manage any breakthrough pain. Also taking a lot of Tylenol to try and keep the fever down.
The doctors have attributed the fevers to just being a side effect of the tumor and I've talked to other cancer patients who have experienced the same thing. Just wondering if anyone here has been through this. It's starting to wear on me!
