Hello to all,
Another question. I have now been on sprycel for 8 days, yesterday I ran a fever 102, called the md on call, went to the "intake room", where nurses on the oncology floor can start iv's, draw labs, etc so the pt doesn't have to go to the ER and get exposed to goodness knows what. The fever broke, they did blood work including a CBC, CMP (chemistry) and urine test. Urine was negative, chemistry fine, a little dehydrated, the CBC showed my WBC count went from 79 down to 22 (I'm amazed). Anyway, now having chills and fever 100.4, have had low grade all weekend, except when spiked to 102 yesterday. Could it be I have fever because of the rapid decline in WBC's (how my body responding?), just the sprycel? I know fever is one side effect. I would love any opinions, looking at Trey's blog after I post this.
