Ok, my son was due to have his 3rd Remi infusion yesterday, but when he got there, they would not give it to him due to a cold he has had for about a week now. He has no fever or sneezing, just head congestion that drips down his throat and causes hoarseness and cough. He isn't taking any medicine, but I got him Zicam swabs for his nose. He also does steam inhalation,,, nothing is helping.
Seems to be hanging on. Is it ok that he missed this third infusion? He had one, then two weeks later had the 2nd, and 4 weeks later was supposed to have this one. They said they'd do it next week if his cold is gone. Now, it was just the nurse at the infusion center that told him this and I don't know if she informed his doctor. I'll have to wait till monday to call the office. But,,just wondered if anyone ever had this problem, and would skipping this infusion through him off or mess him up. My hubby got over his cold quickly and I didn't get much of one. But my sons is hanging on.
Once again,,,thanks for any input. It is always good to hear from people who went thru this.
