Temperature

Hi guys, bit of advice please…day 8 of TAC and done my morning temperature check and it’s 34.4…it’s been around 36.7 every day…they never said anything about low temperature so wondering if this is normal? X

Low temperature can be a sign of neutropenia, so best to check it again and if it is still low give your chemo unit a call.

Mariecay I was told to contact my chemo team if my temperature went below 35, if it’s was 38 or above and if it was around 37.5 for more than an hour. With a low temperature you need to watch out for hypothermia. I’ve been neutropenic 3 times now (joys of chemo - NOT) and on all times my temperature rose above 38.

Good luck with your chemo
