Anyone Know Flu Cures? .:ANIMAL:. California 740 posts

So, I had my Chemo late last week, and now I'm home...running a fever, and feeling like crap. I think I may have got a flu or something on top of the usual "crap" feeling. Anyone else feeling sub-par or worse?

Aw, man. Lots of fluids, plain food if you can keep it down, and I had some good success with the Tylenol Severe Flu and Cold if you're able to take that. <3

Quoting .Colleen.:" Fluids and supplements can help the severity and duration but if you truly feel it is Flu, there are antivirals that are supposed to help (Tamiflu) Have you mentioned it to your doctor?"


She just said it's because of my low cell count, and that I am more suceptible to catching colds and flu, she told me I could ride it out and just drink lots of fluids and try to eat what I can, or I could come in to get more medicine to try to raise my blood count...the whole medicine thing is not a route I want to go...I already feel like I'm overloading every organ in my body with poison, I'd rather not inject more synthetics.
