I was admitted with neutropena sepsis whilst on chemo in February 2014. I had a side room for first two days as I was at risk of infection. After this I was moved to the general ward 9B. There were 2 dementia patients who screamed and banged about nearly all day and night. I felt utterly exhausted and near to tears every day. Even when on side room the noise was not condusive to getting better. Might have to be admitted during this round of chemo. Dreading it and getting stressed already.
