Hi--what's the full blood pressure--both numbers? Any symptoms right now?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I don't know bottom just the top was 90 and heat rate was 50 I'm not sure if it's a chemo effect .

just usual fatigue and bit breathlessness

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
That doesn't sound like a chemo effect and he needs to be seen immediately since it could be either a heart attack or severe dehydration
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes we are thinking dehydration as he does not really drink fluids on chemo

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
That blood pressure and heart rate need immediate medical attention
