Sepsis and neutropenic after chemotherapy

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon all,

This is my first post to this forum.  My husband has had sepsis twice in the past 9 months as he has been neutropenic after chemotherapy for bladder cancer.  On his most recent admission to hospital, the urologist stated that he would not be surprised if he was admitted again due to the fact that he has a stent from his kidney and also a permanent catheter.  This is slightly worrying and we find ourselves watching his temperature as we were also told if it gets above 37.5 that we have to go straight back to A&E.  This last admission he had nine days of IV antibiotics four times a day but has now been told that he cannot be given anymore at this time. Has anyone else out there had this kind of issue either after chemotherapy or when being neutropenic ?
