Chemo related infection

I’ve had 3 FEC and my first T is booked for Tuesday. I am seeing my oncologist tomorrow. I’m currently taking antibiotics for a badly infected sebaceous cyst on my tummy. This has been seen twice on the chemo unit by a doctor and the antibiotics are a second lot as the first ones didn’t work. I think the new antibiotics are working, I’m not in any pain now. The infection has been caused by the chemo but my bloods were fine when checked on Friday. Has anyone had anything similar whilst on chemo and is it likely to mean that the chemo on Tuesday will be delayed?
