Did the doctors order antibiotics for either of your cases? Whenever my mom has had fevers, our onco always starts IV antibiotics, before blood cultures come back. Even if blood cultures are negative, he still orders them. Not sure if this is the case with everyone. My mom had a fever all day yesterday highest it got to was 101.3 but it would come down to normal with regular tylenol. Today she is fine, just worried if I should take her to the hosptial but she was on IV antibiotics just recently for a month due to liver abscesses so the thought of going on them again for her is sickening...
