can you start chemo if you have a cold?
                      









michael
mostly yea unless its really really bad but the chemo will make you sick a lot of the time anyway (MY ADVICE IS EAT LOTS OF BREAD, STUFF YOURSELF FULL RIGHT UP TO THE CHEMO) it will cut down getting sick afterward a lot trust me this worked for a bunch i know and the doc even starting telling his pat. this to help with the chemo sickness best of luck


Louisa
Depends on your blood count. Generally during a cold your blood count is low, and worse during chemo. So they usually wait until it is at a good enough level.

I started my chemo and radiation on 10/21/08 and I woke up with a cold the saturday before that! I asked my drs and got the go ahead. I'm still fine and my cold is actually clearing up.


Morena
It depends on your blood count, I recently just finished chemo and I know sometimes I had to go the week after because my counts were low. They need to be a certain amount, and your counts sometimes get low when you are sick or getting a cold, so most likely not.

depends on the doctor...they always checked my white cell count if I felt sicker than usual...I only had to miss one session.
GOOD LUCK!

I just finished up with chemo. and it will depend on rather you're running a temperature or not and what your white blood cell count is.


Jayaraman
It depends on the severity of cold the patient has. If it is a mild one the doctor will try to cure it and start chemotherapy. If it is chronic chemo will not be started. The reasons for this are -

1. The first and foremost precaution to be taken for patients having chemo is that they should not get any infection. Even outside food or ordinary water are not allowed to avoid any possible infection, which will be harmful when you have chemo.

2. Colds make people more susceptible to bacterial infections such as strep throat, middle ear infections, and sinus infections.

3. One of the most common side effect of chemotherapy is acute Nausea and vomiting. It will start possibly from the second day and continue for more than 10 days. Colds make the patient to caugh which will in turn increase nausea and vomiting and make untoloreble situation to the patient.

For these reasons chemotherapy is not given when the patient has cold. -
