I completed radiation therapy 3 weeks ago and had staph infection in the burns. I am on antibiotics but feeling unwell and hit temp of 38.2. Being a Sunday do I ride it out or go to emergency.

    Yes go off to emergency just to be sure.   Hope the burns start to heal soon for you.

    Hopefully you’ve headed off to Emergency now. It’s just one thing after another, isn’t it!! Do hope you’re feeling much better soon.

    Hi @T0mmy I got an infection post radiation. I was so sick and recovery was long and hard.   Ended up in hospital for 10 days. I hope you are ok.

    I’d say go to emergency. What a scary time for you. No point delaying with infections, esp if oral antibiotics not beating it.
    best wishes
