Fever, Fever

Hippocrates the father of modern medicine is reported to have said: “Give me a fever and I can cure any disease.” – I think he is not wrong.

Something curious has happened during my second FOLFIRI cycle. Every evening for the last 8 days, I have had low grade fever in the 37.3 to 37.5 degrees Celsius range. I had fever one day during my first Folfox treatment months ago, but nothing like this.

Fever can be a sign of increasing cancer cell apoptosis, or the immune system being stirred into action, both of which would be a very good thing. The question is what caused the fever in the first place?

During The first Folfiri cycle I had no fever, and unfortunately I introduced 3 new adjuvant treatments and any one or folfiri could be responsible. Coinciding with the second Folfiri cycle I started:

1. high dose vitamin C IV therapy
2. taking MAF 878 pro biotic yogurt daily
3. weekly GCMAF injections

I am hoping the fever continues, and I am looking forward to my next blood test results. In the meantime I am still continuing with my daily whole body hyperthermia to get my temperature even higher for at least an hour each day.


About Ren

I have been diagnosed with stage 4, metastatic colorectal cancer in October 2012, 3 days after my 44th birthday. There is no cure, but I am determined to go down the road less travelled to find one. I have setup this blog to document my journey and hopefully help others in the process. My view is that if there is a cure, it does not lie with traditional chemo, but with the immune system. Time will tell.
