Hello there.

I due to start my first chemo end of the week but I feel I have a cold coming? Will that stop my treatment?

    The treatment may still go ahead however, it depends on your blood results which will show whether your counts are high enough for your immune system to fight the cold as well as manage the chemo. Let your hospital Dr/specialist nurse know if a cold does develop and they will advise.
    Best wishes
