Happy New Year!
I have just switched to this new chemo, first side effect was bad skin rash. Now skin rash is gone, I am running hi fever every day in the late afternoon and night, as high as 103 and up. It would last about 3-4 days after the treatment.
Any body has such experience? How do you deal with it ?
I am also contacting my oncologist now.

My CA-19 once dropped to 17 for 3 months about. But now st...
