Hi, I have a streaming cold and am due to have chemo on Wednesday (folfox) just wonderingi if anyone else has gone ahead with chemo or been delayed due to a cold? Thanks.
Hi Marycl,im in the same boat, had a runny nose n cough this weekend, im having a covid test middle of week, as hoping to start my 1st treatment later on, lets keep our fingers crossed ,everything can go ahead for both of us, Take care & stay safe xx
Hi nan nan,
It's so annoying, I haven't had a cold for over a year . I had blood and Covid tests this morning so should find out tomorrow. Yes, let's hope we can both go ahead with treatments. X
Hi both, if I remember rightly they stopped my chemo when I was poorly with a bad cold, but my regime was a different one anyway. They may do additional bloods to check and go from there. Fingers crossed for you!
Thanks Gemmary, I am going to ring them this afternoon, they should have my bloods back. X
Fingers crossed, Good luck Marycl xx
Hi Gemmary, ty ,fingers crossed x
Thanks nan-nan, my bloods were still good and I felt much better this morning so went ahead with treatment. Just waiting for my scan results from Monday now, I hate the waiting.
Your name is what my grandchildren call their great gran.
Hope you are feeling better soon x
Hey, Marycl, that was good news, one more ticked off! And we share a name I guess!
Yes that was my 25th session of FOLFOX lets hope its doing its job.
Mary is my middle name after my Granny, I'm not quite sure why we are asked not to use our names when setting up, I would happily use mine lol x
That sounds like you're in it for the long haul! Might help others if you filled in your profile? Stay safe
