  • night sweats 6 wks post treatment


    My husband was treated with 4 cycles of BEP. Last treatment was 9/19. Had CT and PET scan on 10/10 showing no cancer activity. The last 4 nights he has had bed drenching night sweats. Anyone else experience this? I've heard of night sweats during treatment, but not after.

    Many thanks!

    if this helps

    I have been having the strangest dreams. My mind will not rest even when I sleep I still feel like I am awake.
    Your hubby has been through a lot and it may take time.
    That's just a guess though.

    Ask the MED ONC , I am sure a simple phone call will put you at ease or give you the answer you are looking for.

      Hi Clyde On,

      I've experienced the same thing you described. I think that its a combination of having your mortality challenged, primal fear, and lingering effects from general anaesthesia. Apparently it can take a week or two for that stuff to get out of your system. I suspect that the weird dreams continue to perpetuate themselves for some time after that.

      Man, some have been freaky...

      Detected mass 10-6-06, Radical left I/O 10-10-06, Stage I seminoma, 1.5 cm primary, No LV invasion, No Rete Testis Invasion... Currently on Surveillance.

        more info

        My husband went in for labwork and apparently his LDH is slightly elevated. Previously 210, currently 270. Will retest next week. Any advice?

          Isn't that in normal range? LDH isn't specific to testicular cancer; it's an indicator of cell damage. I wouldn't be too worried.
