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.

    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.

    Caz xx

    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
