I juat finished treatment 12 and running a fever 102.4, I know I am suppose to call if it gets to 104. but is this an area of concern should I call the cancer center anyway? My fever was 101.3 last night. My throat is a bit achy.

I was told to call if my temp was above 101. Please call and let them know. They may need to give you antibiotic. Stay well.

I think when you wait until it gets to 104 it is already pretty serious and with what you are going through it could spike higher. I wouldn't let it go. Better to get it checked out now. Hope you feel better soon.

Whenever a normal temp is over 103, it should be placed in a doctors hands. MY onc told me to get to the ER if my temp goes up to 100.3, that is a sure sign of infection, I hope you get better!

Hugsss!

John's Onc told us any fever of 100.4 to go to the ER and tell them he is on chemo. So I think you should go. Could have an infection. Paula G.

Nana,

As others have already stated, I was also told to call the Dr. right away if I developed a fever of 100.4 or over. I think you were confused between 100.4 and 104. 104 is VERY high & I don't think an oncologist would say to wait until it's that high.

I hope that you are alright by now and either the fever went away or you've gotten in and gotten some help. Praying for you!

Well I was in bed most of my day weekend with fever betweein 100 and 102. Feeling better, my throat is a bit sore, and blood clots keep forming in my nose. I am sure the blood clots are from my platelets being low. I think that I am on the road to recovery......thank you all!!

104 is pretty high!

I had the blood clots too. I used saline nose spray every morning and every evening. It sure did help. I could breathe again.

I'm so glad that you are on antibiotics and feeling better. Take it easy and don't over do.
