I was just hospitalised for a week with an infection. Pretty nasty and very low blood count too so had injections to the stomach to stimulate the production. I haven’t been able to have the immunotherapy while in here and so treatment has stopped. Anyone else been in hospital with infections while having treatment? Did it matter to your treatment?
Hi Bassey, sorry you have been threw this set back..
At my set back, i had not started immunotherapy, i was on chemo, and the first one caused a heart attack.
I thought they are going to stop the chemo, no i had to have a 6 week break, to get over heart attach, and a different chemo, was the plan.
My oncologists said we know how long we can withdraw treatment for.#
I then had 8 more chemo's and two years, on immunotherapy with no further problems.
Hope others come along if they have an answer for you. x
These infections can be difficult to get rid of. Yes I was in hospital while on a Trial Drug and thought that would be the end of treatment for me. However I stopped the drug while I was in hospital and restarted two months later.
Im well passed my sell by date so it didn't seem to affect me at all.
Love Annette x
I am on immunotherapy and had it paused for about 10 weeks for an immune related adverse event. I was not happy about it even though I had read trial papers which showed gaps in treatment didn't impact outcomes. I mean, let's not put it to the test, huh?! The positive outcomes continued after I restarted treatment and now I look back and laugh at how I felt about it. But rest assured it was NOT funny at the time.
Sorry to hear you been so poorly & in hospital, I have no experience of this but just wanted to say I am thinking of you & sending a big hug xx
Hi Bassy, sorry about the late reply I've been on holiday, in answer to your question since being diagnosed I've had covid twice and sepsis , cancer meds stopped until the infection was sorted, now everything back to normal, just living life with my family as it should be lived, happy happy happy.
