In brief: Ask Infectious Dis.

Fever like that requires cultures when the fever is at its maximum .
Document ur temp. On a calendar.We have to rule out causes of fever of unknown origen: infections (abscess, cholangitis), cancer ( lymphoma and others )recurrence of cancer if the whipple procedure was done for that, collagen vascular disorders (systemic lupus, rheumatic arthritis, vasculitis) fever from antibiotics. Get i.D.

In brief: Relapsing Fever

Read up on relapsing fever but only do so after you right down all of your associated symptoms.
Then compare to what a reputable source says r symptoms of relapsing fever. Do not jump to conclusions. There are more than 2 drs. Out there. Maybe you need a specialist like an infectious disease specialist. Whipple tells me you had panc ca....I would focus on recurrence above everything else!
