James is the same. Fever spikes and then aspirin will knock it down a bit - 'round the clock. I hate his taking so MUCH aspirin but his temp goes REALLY high if he didn't take it. Ibuprofen is worse on the liver and Tylenol is completely out of the question.
I was able to get him aspirin (with crackers & milk) BEFORE the temp spiked last night/this morning around 4 a.m. and actually got to finish the night in OUR bed! Neither of us sleeps well but at least we were together. (Misery loves company, right?) The doctor said that if we didn't hear from them by tomorrow to call so I'll give them until afternoon tomorrow. They changed computer systems and had completely LOST all those test results from the specialist last year. They were SUPPOSED to call & get them re-faxed but I'm not holding my breath. The surgeon who did my bilateral mastectomy in December of '15 left a message on our phone last week to call them and get a 6-month appointment - and added "I guess we should have done this last year"! I don't have much confidence in competency sometimes.
Thank you Nancy for asking. I'm HAPPY you will be off the antibiotic now and HOPEFUL that infection is gone! I also hope when you have the cyst removed that it never comes back. The one beside my nose was removed FOUR times (and THAT was fun!). Like I said, now if I get a flair up I put the topical antibiotic on it twice a day and by the 3rd day it is fine. I would be happy to send you some of mine if you would like to try it. :o)
