I am a new member, having being diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2012. I had a lumpectomy in October, and my nodes and lines were clear. The bad part of my cancer is that I am a triple negative patient. I started my chemo treatment in November and have finished 3 treatments of AC, to complete the fourth at the end of the month. During the second and third treatment I developed a cold which I still have, and over the weekend I developed a fever. I have been in touch with my Medical Oncologist who has given me fluids on Monday and Tuesday. Today I started feeling a bit light headed and checked my pressure (0n top of everything else I am hypertensive) and found that my pressure is now very low. The nurse at my clinic has told me that I should go to a nearby clinic for treatment. Is there any advise that I can get at this point as to what to do. It is a very frightening experience for me, and I know it will get better, but right now I am not sure what I should do.
