I just finished my chemo radiation treatments 3 weeks ago, I can sympathize with your issues as I am having the same kind of problems, But as far as having fever and chills after sex,if your docotors can't tell you why this is happening then you should seek advice elswhere.
Fever and chills usually indicate some sort of infection, and should be treated. Hope this helps..

Hi YoYo,
I agree with the previous post that there may be an infection somewhere. As far as the weight gain, have you had your thyroid checked? I assume that we may have been on similar regimens Cisplatin, 5FU, Mitomycin-C? These drugs can cause problems with the bodies hormones, can cause anemia's & nutritional deficiencies as well as early severe menopause. If the thyroid is off, it is important to find what may be causing it such as adrenal fatigue or insufficiency. Also, thyroid problems often plague women during menopause. I recommend the website Women 2 Women. Check it out. Hope this helps? Khatfield
