    Should I be worried about a cold after chemo

    So I've started college about two weeks after finishing chemo and I have a bit of a cold runny nose, caufing, and blood nose I think it's just a cold and stress from increased activity but this morning I started caufing up a decent amount of blood. Should I go see a doctor or just let it run its course

      Any time you caugh up blood you shou8ld see a Dr ASAP. The rest of the symptoms other then the bloody nose are probaly not too much worry. You sho0uld remember that dorm are great places for disease to spread with all of the people in close provimity and germs like that type of envioment. You probably didn't expect them to go with you to college but they do! Remember that you imune system is still weak so stay away from others that are sick. Good Luck and don't miss a test because you get sick.

      Definitely. Your immune system is still not back to normal and can no ward off infections.

      Coughing up blood is not something to be ignored. Please do contact your doctor.

      Better to be safe then sorry. See a doctor or the campus health office ASAP.
