Chemo while living alone - anyone else?
Hi all, hope everyone had a restful Christmas.
Quick question re. chemo and living arrangements if I may....
Has anyone negotiated chemo (Capox 4 cycles currently) while living alone? I did have somewhere to stay but Covid has made everyone a little scared I think and so that offer is no longer 'on the table' so to speak, as the people concerned are too worried about the possibility of passing it to me (and my specialist mentioned if the hospitals were in trouble and it came down to a choice between treating me and another person without cancer they wouldn't treat me).
Friends are worried to come and see me as they're mostly out working/mixing with people - so I'm conscious that I may have to do a fair percentage of this alone. I do have a couple of friends who work from home who have offered to stay with me on very bad days (of course I have no idea what to expect yet as I know it's all v individual) but I can't take advantage of their good nature so am aware there will be many solo days too. My partner works in a school and we don't live together so that's an issue.
I'm not looking for assurances as I know no one can give those - more reassurance I guess that there will be days in the 3 weekly cycles where it's possible to not be a burden on others! So experiences from those who have been through this while living alone would be hugely appreciated.
Thank you and Happy New Year
