Hi all, hope everyone is having some good today.
I woke up this morning with a fever of 101.4.
Butt, I had plans, so took two Motrin and ignored it.
I know, I'm not supposed to ignore fevers, BUTT I didn't want to spend the day in the emergency room like I did 2 months ago!
What happened two months ago, was 9 days after fullfury infusion, I woke up with temp of 101. Like a dutiful patient, I called into Kemeny's office and followed their direction to go to my local onc for blood and urine work. NOTHING was found. It was a wasted day and I had had some pretty good plans for that day. The fever disappeared on its own after about six hours.
Today is ten days after last infusion. I get Neulasta injections every two weeks so my wbc is always fine. I checked my temp at the six hour mark, figuring the Motrin most likely had worn off. Temp was 99.5. Now, ten hours later, Motrin definitely gone, temp is 99.
My question, has anyone had similar scenario? Did the fevers ever stop? Or was a cause ever found?
Thanks for your input.
