There are several symptoms that may require hospitalization after you have received chemotherapy. You should call if you have:
-fever above 101*F
-nausea, vomiting, inability to eat for 2 days or more
-chest pain, shortness of breath
-sores in your mouth
-severe diarrhea, lightheadedness or dizziness
-severe pain
-profound weakness
-other Of course, we would hope to prevent hospitalizations from severe symptoms so we do encourage a phone call early on. If you are not sure whether or not to call, it is best to err on the side of caution and call your doctor. We would much rather have you call and be given advice on how to manage your symptoms rather than waiting until your symptoms have progressed.
