just had a thought for the ladies who are newly going through this.
Has anyone adviced you to have your flu and pneumonia vaccine?
My oncologist didn`t suggest it to me, but my GP did do and two of my friends who was going through breast cancer the same time as I had the OV had been adviced to have them by their oncologists.
I had already started my chemo when I had mine, infact it was January/february time which is in actual fact a little late in the season. Now I get a reminder from my GP every Autumn.
Its OK to have them while you are having the treatment, but advisable to have them one week before your next chemo when your immune system has climbed back up.
If no one has mentioned this and you are concerned, contact your oncologist nurse for advice, the last thing you need is flu or worse while you are going through this.
All the best with love from Tina xxx
