Night Sweats

I am having real problems with night time sweats. It is something I used to have when I was first diagnosed. At the time my oncologist said it was the "activity of the cancer" causing the heat. It soon went as the chemo began working. However, it is back. My numbers are up to 1,600 ish and I know my cancer is growing.

I was wondering if anyone else experienced anything like this? It wakes me up at least 3 times a night. My night clothes are damp and cold and I have to change. My bed sheets are also damp and my hair is wringing wet with a wet pillow case.

I am back on carboplatin so I am hoping it will stop soon as the chemo will begin to work.

Thank you for your comments. I guess I always knew it was the cancer's activity. However in recent evenings it has not been quite so bad so that is making me think that my new chemo may just be working :)

I am keeping my fingers crossed xxxxx

Mum also got a lot of this in the beginning but it was killed off by the carbo so fingers crossed for you.
