Soon to start chemo any extra precautions needed
I have just been diagnosed with Bowel cancer for second time in 4.5 years, stage 3 & cancerous lymph nodes, almost same diagnosis as first time I had it, then I had a right side hemoplectomy . This operation I’ve had to have a illeostomy on left upper side. It’s 3 weeks ago & coping ok with it & feel ok also, just tired.
i have got my appointment in 2weeks at cancer centre about the chemo I’ll be starting, obviously I’m apprehensive as I’ve done it before, but now with the corona virus I’m really concerned about contracting it while my immune system is low due to the chemotherapy, I’m usually a strong person & cope with things as they come but this I'm really worried about.
