I was told to contact my onc if my temperature was 100.5 or above. Then I was told, when I did contact the cancer center once, to take ibuprofen and if the temp didn't go down in a couple of hours to call them back. It did so I didn't worry about it.

Yeah, sounds like a case of the good ol' flu. Rest. Drink plenty of fluids. Eat soup. Good luck finding something interesting to watch on TV.
I got a flu shot in October, but I came down with the flu anyway, thanks to a co-worker who "heroically" attended a conference with us 3 weeks ago and infected us all. What a guy.
Dx: Sudden severe anemia detected 07/2011, followed by WBC spike. CML Dx 02/2012.
Rx: 03/2012-Gleevec400. Reduced 02/2013 to Gleevec300 due to side effects (low blood counts).
Response: PCR-Und within 7 mo. on G400. Maintained MMR4-MMR4.5 on G300. PCR-Und since 02/2016.
