I recall my throat was sore in the area of my Adam's Apple during the early months of my treatment.  Not a typical sore throat.  And I was always having to clear my throat.

If you had low white blood cells and absolute neutrolphils a soar throat could be serious while on treatment. I suppose it could be a reaction to your first injection also, Since you only started 3 days ago it is unlkely that this is the problem.

You might have picked up an infection from someone having nothing to do with treatment.
Hope you feel better soon,

I should also add that the throat issue that I had would come on about Monday and Tuesday of each week and my shot was on Friday.  I always associated it with my shot because it would show up like clockwork.  I didn't have it all through treatment but during the first month or so for sure.

I too had a sore throat. Mine came and went but I tended to have it more often than not. I noticed it seemed to coincide with shortly after shot night.

I keep a humidifier on.  It helps that my throat doesn't get dry.  Also I do lozenges. Right now I am having a litle pain in my nostrils.  I have to watch that closely.  Last time on Tx, I got an infection in my nose that hurt WORSE that anything else in Tx.  There was absolutely nothing that would ease the pain for several days.  Ugh.  This time I would get help sooner, rather than later.

   I too have a sore throat off and on. comes and goes two or three days a week. Be sure you report it to your nurse so anything unusual can be caught early. Tina
