My loved one has just had their 6th round of chemo for small cell lung cancer extensive disease. They fell ill a few days ago and yesterday experience high temps, shivers and was slightly delirious. Took them to emergency and they were admitted straight away, bloods taken and they have tested positive to influenza. They have only left the house three times this last week for their chemo treatments so I'm thinking they've picked it up at the hospital. Im wondering if this will affect his ongoing treatment? How long they generally keep them in hospital once they contract influenza? They are due for more scans soon. With possible further rounds of chemo in approx two weeks.
