sorry i have another question...
I'm going to get the flu jab before all treatment starts.
should the rest of my family get vaccinated too?
My mother, who lives with us, is adamant she doesnt need it.
Hi pixie76, you are doing the right thing by getting your flu jab, i had mine on Thursday, personally i think everyone should have one as it makes sense but it cannot be forced upon people. As long as you are covered that is the main issue as that's the last thing you want to have during the build-up to your treatment etc. I have sent you a friends request if you want to accept it's up to you. Im pleased you are asking questions as it all helps, no need to say sorry Take care.

Yes go for it
I would kindly explain that you are going to need all the help and support you can get in your journey and that you will need your mum. I know how stubborn my mum was but if I put it that way she would have had it for me....just a thought ;)
I've tried and she swears she has already spoken to a dr. (doubt that very much)
she lives with us too so if she gets ill...
I think it's a loat cause to be honest. The rest of us will get done, I will call my gp monday and get an appointment.
Good luck. some mothers eh?
mine used to sit tutting over the Daily Mail spread out over the table all day. It used to drive me mad! I’d give anything now to get mad again.
