Last week when I got my first bout of chemo the nurse told me she didn't reccomend I be around anyone who was sick after the first week b/c your white blood cell count is really low. She said she would go as far as avoiding restaurants, movie theatres, stores etc. I just want to know how many of you actually caught an illness while doing chemo? And how bad was it? Or is it just like any other time you get sick? Also, did any of you guys get a fever while on chemo? She said to go to the ER if I get a fever as little as 100.3!
