Should I be worried, temperature keeps dropping 35.8 this evening but I don't have any other symptons. Is such a worry knowing whether to phone the hospital. I phoned last night and the nurse said see your GP for blood test the next day and the bloods were fine.
Sorry to hear about your temperature.
You don't mention if you're currently undergoing treatment or have been diagnosed?
Going by the fact they said to go to your doctor's I would imagine they aren't overly concerned, though I was always told a low temp can indicate a fever too in some cases.
I would keep a diary of the temperature and track it hourly through the day for 3 days and make a note of any changes. Obviously if you start feeling unwell at all or have a cough, shivers shakes the usual then call up your emergency oncology service asap.
A low temp on its own isn't always something to concern about. Especially when it's 0.2 lower than the normal range, but keep an eye on it.
It's reassuring that your bloods came back clear.
Wishing you all the best
Im on my first cycle of FEC chemo for IDC breast cancer after a masectomy in October. Day 3 & 4 sleepless, hot and a little shivery but minor, just slightly unwell. My temperature dips to 35.5 but has just come up again to 36.5 so that's encouraging. I am poised to phone the Oncologist Hospital so the anxiety is hard to manage. In the day I feel quite well, it's the evenings and nights!
Thank you for replying ,
Whenever I phoned the acute team and my temperature was like yours it didn't phase them. They just said that they have no reason for me to go in to see them and that it's only if it gets to 38 that I need to go in.
My temperature dips down rather than goes up. I've felt rubbish the last 2 days, wondering how I'm going to get through 5 more cycles. But there's no choice so onwards and upwards. Trying to stay upbeat, on the sofa in front of the fire. The worst is the insomnia. I took sleeping pills one night but zonked me out the next day...
