Around day 18 of my treatment, I started to notice that my chest would hurt briefly at the beginning of administering the medication. This lead to my legs aching and ultimately a fever. After contacting the doctor, we decided to stop the treatment early. I was feeling so much better by then, we figured it was not worth the complications to have three more days of antibiotics. With that my line was pulled on Monday and I have been feeling great ever since.
But it leaves the question...why the fevers? This happened to me last time towards the end of the treatment. For now, I really don't think it is something that warrants worrying, but it does leave a small amount of worry about next time I need IVs. The doctor indicated that I may need to do IVs in the hospital next time to complete the whole treatment under observation. Hopefully, that day is a long way off.
