My dad has been diagnozed with Thymoma cancer and they could not remove it via surgery. He started his first round of chemo this past monday, tuesday and wednesday. He was fine until Friday. Today he said it feels if he is on fire from the inside and then starts to get cold.

Anyone got this from the red devil chemo?

I guess you are talking about Adriamycin, which is red. It is a pretty potent chemo drug. I would call the oncologist just to be on the safe side. I it were a woman, I'd say "hot flashes," but since it is your dad... Sorry, but I don't remember feeling that way from the Adria.

Good luck to your dad! Hope he is able to kick this.
