Abscesses?

Just wondering if anyone has developed abcesses on their body while on Folfiri + Avastin?  Pat had to be admitted to the hospital, on iv antibiotics, and have 2 of the worse abcesses surgically removed today.  I asked the surgeon why so many abcesses developed at one time.  He told me that was the million dollar question.  Most likely his compromised immune system.  Pat should be out of the hospital in a day or 2 but we were told it could be a recurring problem.  Scheduled for chemo tomorrow but will have to cancel.  

Thanks!
