Hey Daisy,sorry to hear about your Mum.Although its very scary for you, to the hospital its a very common problem with chemo. I fell ill and ended up in hospital every cycle. One time i was in with pneumonia and flu at the same time as being neutopenic! Its not pleasant at all . I hope your Mum does not get unwell every cycle but my family was scared for me the first couple of times and then we just expected it and it just became the norm untill chemo finished.. Lovely that your there for your Mum, knowing that my family and close friends cared got me through it all . All the best hun .
I became neutopaenic with pneumonia after first cycle of tax.my neutrophils were zero.took few days for temp to settle and bloods to recover. I am never ill so great shock for me but seemed quite normal as far as hospital concerned.since then have had reduced doses , antibiotics day 4 to 10 and no more admissions.HOPE mum is feeling better and home soon.gill
Sorry to hear about your mum. She's in the right place am sure they will get things sorted out for her. Ive been back 3 times since my first chemo on the 2nd Dec and finally on top of side effects etc...
Your mum's lucky to have you.... Love C x
