What causes chills and constant cold feeling after surgery for cancer?
My sister has had the operation but she is having chills and very cold all the time. She has been having this chills for months way before the operation but nothing is done because she does not have a temperation. She has the heat on at all times or sits in the sun and wears sweaters even when its 90 degrees. what is causing the chills and what can she do about it? Thanks
Due to weakness.
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The chills can be related to the generalized weakness in the body due to the cancer cells and the surgery. This can be controlled with a healthy diet and keeping herself warm. Cancers are also associated with a decline in the body's immunity. So, a person is more prone to infections.
She can add nuts and fresh fruits to her diet and try to keep her body warm with extra clothes. It will take time for the weakness to recover and the chilly feeling to subside.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
