Well, just here to update. As you can see in my signature my dear mum had APR about 2 weeks ago without complications, everything was going smoothly and she started to eat. She was discharged from clinic after a week. Now she has been experiencing chills and fever, does not want to eat and some coughs. We are in clinic again so her surgeon prescribed some antibiotics and for fever. Xrays and blood tests were taken too. A bit scared. Did anyone experience this?
Nothing seems to be easy here. In some weeks she will be under chemo to avoid recurtence as she was staged t3n1 ( 3 lymph nodes cancerous out of 26 taken).
Your prayers please.
