Re: Scared and fed up

Trisha, I endorse the infection advice. You just don't need it. However, I think at this point medical advice is needed, not mates. Sorry you have been delayed, but I've had my first chemo and you do need to be able to fight fatigue and reserves of energy. Which is what the vitamin B does. Good luck with it all. X

Thank you, my gut feeling is to not have the tooth removed.......?? xx

hi Trisha,
hopefully, the tooth will be ok, but also the infection risk from the tooth would not be helpful when embarking on chemo, but so frustrating when you just want to get on with it.
wishing you all the very best on this.

Scared and fed up

Should have started my1st Chemo on Tuesday but my platelets and other blood results made them say no, postponed it.  Am taking Vitamin B12, Folic Acid and Thiamine .  Told the BCN  had toothache so on antibiotics as well.  Am seeing the Oncolgist 25th and if blood results satisfactory can start the treatment.  In the meantime due to the antibiotics I no longer have toothache but the Dentist wants to remove a tooth on Monday and if the gum hasnt healed they will probably postpone chemo again.  I dont feel I need to have the tooth removed .... what do I do???  I just want to get started with the treatment...
