    Do you usually run a low grade temp after transfusion? During transfusion he ran one of 101, tylenol was given. But a day after transfusion (this evening) running one of a little over 100. Is this normal? Also, he said his urine looked a little red, normal? We had a shocker yesterday at doc’s office, they aren’t sure it’s MDS, this could all be related to his non-hodgkins, but they are stumped. Taking more tests this week.




    i don’t know, but i think you should definitely call the doctor and ask

    good luck



    No first-hand experience here … but have read a lot on the site here that the fever is common – though don’t know for certain about a day after …. I’m pretty sure I’ve read that as well.
    Haven’t read and don’t know about the “little red” … agree that it sounds like a question for the doc.


    I have not usually had a fever after a trans, though I have had reactions during a tranfusion.

    I usually had red in urine for a couple of days after. The thing tobe concerned about is if the urine looks like Pepsi, this may mean blood in the urne.



    Actually, the urine being reddened is a sign of blood in it. The fever could be a slight reaction to the transfusion. The blood in the urine could be as well.
    It is best to let the doctor know about both of these. If you are not taking Tylenol and Benadryl before a transfusion, it may be a good idea.

    Good luck, Andrea, R.N.


    You may be right and it sure looked that way to me at first. I asked the Dr. about it and he didn’t think it was blood; gave me the other observation as a point at which to think about blood in the urine.
