I'm coming over from the OVCA board with a question regarding a close friend.
My friend had surgery a few months ago for stage 3 uterine cancer. She underwent 25 radiation treatments. She completed those about a month ago.
About ten days ago she developed a high fever (103). A medical doctor put her on antibiocs. Thankfully, the fever finally broke. However, she will not eat, finally Wed. she had bowel movement after 3 days. However, all thru the fever period she had a rash on her back and chin. She still has the rash, won't eat, and is extremely weak. She is extremely overweight. She's in her mid 60's. Her husband is just heart broken. He wanted to call an ambulance because she is so weak. She said no, because she said she would refuse to have them take her to the hospital. Of course, she refuses to allow her husband to take her to the E.R.
Anyone experienced these rashes? We fear she has just given up. I suggested to him that perhaps if he did call an ambulance that it's possible the paramedics could convince her to go to the hospital. I think she's just so scared.
