Just a post to advise of my most recent experience.

Last Sunday evening quietly sat watching the TV when I start to feel very warm. Within an hour my temperature had reached 101 degrees, so I made the call to the hospital and was advised to get in ASAP.

I have to commend the hospital because with the hour I was seen by Haematological Register and then on IV antibiotics within 2 hours of arriving at the hospital.

Over the next 3 days they ran all of the routine tests (CMV, FBC, Cultures, etc) and nothing came back as abnormal.

Conclusion: Infection of Unknown Origin, probably Virial.

I must add that I am 13 months post RFC treatment, therefore still need to be aware of elevated temperatures.

Regards

Robert
