s Patty

It sounds like your mom was exposed to this cold even before the first chemo. The very first chemo usually doesn't knock out the blood counts too drastically, so hopefully she'll get over her cold with no big problems.
If she runs a temperature definitely let her doc know.

Watch Symptoms and Report

Your mom should've gotten a list of symptoms to watch for and to report to the Dr. If she runs a fever over 100.5 that's a call to the Dr. There are others to look out for. We still get the routine things others get but they can be more scary while we're on chemo. Ellen

Oh Patty...

Glad the chemo went well but sad the cold came on. After my first chemo I also was not feeling well for a few days...Not knowing exactly what to expect, I kept blaming it on the chemo. After calling my oncologist constantly, she finally had to tell me that it was not the chemo anymore and probably something else. I went to my regular family doc and had a double ear infection!! He put me on meds, cleared them first with my oncologist, and all was well.

Hope mom gets over the cold real fast. See your doctor if you need to and if she gets fever.
