My husband Ken, stage 4 (had whipple but disease spread within a few monthsafter chemo & radiation - I don't think it ever went away) Pancreas removed. Was treated with GEMOX. Now on GTX. He received his infusion on Friday and by Sunday was running a fever highest it got to ws 99.8 but called MD on Monday and she sent him for Chest X-ray and for blood work. X-ray showed pneumonia. Fever is down, is on cipro 500 mg twice a day. Anyone have experience with this? God Bless all on this board
