I’ve been feeling rather crappy the past few days, with increased cough, dizziness and a low grade fever in the afternoon and evening. However this morning my fever started early and was over 100 degrees when I got up. I sent an email to the trial nurse telling him of my symptoms and asking if they had a look at my CT scan from Wednesday. After looking at it closely it appears that I have a touch of pneumonia in my right lung. This is my third lung infection since mid December.
As a result they cancelled my biopsy and treatment dates. I am now on the antibiotic Levofloxacin for seven days. Once I sign the consent form, I must complete all tests and begin treatment within 28 days. So that gives the clinic a little two weeks after I get off the antiboiotics to complete a biopsy, get the data back and begin treatment.
