hi all

my dad has secondary renal cancer with bone metastasis. After some spinal chord compression, he had more radiotherapy and is now having Denosumab bone strengthening injections monthly. He had his second about 3 weeks ago. Since then he’s had an infection, high temperatures, shivering, constant headache, huge fatigue. He was hospitalised for 24 hours and given antibiotics but now is still so weak, and has had shivers, headache etc.  I’ve read that Denosumab can have similar side effects.  Has anyone experienced this?

thank you
