In brief: Fever 101 F
Many times, fever is the first indication that a patient's white blood cells are low and that they are at risk for infection.
The infusion center staff gives individualized instructions to patients on when to call but in general, a feve of 101f should prompt a call. Also, uncontrolled nausea or vomiting, bad headache, racing heart rate or inability to drink adequate fluids should prompt a call.
