Hi to all and hope ever one is having a good evening. About a month ago my mother was told that she has stage 2 lymphoma and just three weeks ago had her first chemo treatment the side effects did not hit her right away on sunday the 11 she ran a temp of 103.1 she called the doctor and told her to go the the er right away which she did and she is till their.Her temp is up and down like a roller coaster her white count was very poor and as of today they said that it is looking better, still on three different ABT.She has an infection which also show up in the blood culters.We did see one of the doctos that came in tonight and he was telling is what they think is going on and what the problem can be. I need any feed back that I can get from anyone. What the doct said was when the chemo broke up the tumor that it went down in to the stomach bal colon area and into the scar tissue causing an abscess type thing and the only way that they are going to be able to fix the problem is doing surgery which they were hoping that they would not have to do because of the Hi risk that she is in for something else to happen.They want to keep her on ABT for another five days before they do anything like surgery.She cannot stand for anyone to touch her stomach cannot eat and is on pain meds ever three hours cannot keep anything in her stomach.Six months ago she was having problems but she had different doctors and was at a different hospital and they knew nothing.They could never find out what was wrong with her we feel that this has been going on six months ago but because they did not know they did nothing at first they said that their was something but they did not know what and then they came back and said it was nothing to worry about.We are very worry about this she dose not look good but we do know that they first chemo treatment has help by breaking the tumor up but now has this problem because of the dead cells scar tissue causing this infection.Any feed back or suggestions on this.
