Another thing I will have to get used to during this treatment and beyond is constantly taking my temperature. Since Lymphoma weakens the immune system, and chemotherapy pretty much destroys what’s left of it, I’m very susceptible to infections and am ill-equipped to fight them off.
I must take my temperature 4 times daily, and head straight to the E.R. should I have a fever of 38.5°C or higher. Needless to say, my thermometer doesn’t venture far from my water bottle!
