Ups and downs

This past 24 hours I have started to feel more unwell. This has mainly been a low level nausea and an accompanying headache. I have completely lost my appetite and find it particularly hard to eat any form of meat. I have been given anti- sickness and anti-diarrhoea medicines which has helped. My mouth and tongue remain sore and my stomach is fragile.

Last night my temperature began to rise and I felt quite cold and shivery then hot. This is expected during neutropenia as the body has few options for dealing with infection. Thankfully the temperature didn’t stay high for long.

I’m at the bottom of the curve right now. My neutrophils are as low as they will be and hopefully in the next 24-48 hours they will start to rise again.
