Immunotherapy and coronavirus

My husband is on nivolumab and today I have tested positive for covid along with our 6 year old daughter we are isolating in the bedroom away from my husband but I'm so scared of him catching it as anyone on nivolumab had covid?


Morning @Hayleyc89, I am so sorry to hear about you testing positive for covid and hope you escape with relatively mild symptoms.

Has your husband talked with his colorectal nurse specialist or the chemo helpline for advice and hopefully reassurance?

My other suggestion would be him joining the BCUK Immunotherapy FB group to see if anyone can share their experiences.

Please let us know how you all get on and take care, Kim :x::x:


@Hayleyc89 so sorry to hear about yours and your daughter’s Covid. I haven’t been in the same situation but hope you get through this and your husband doesn’t catch it. All the best

Thank you for your replies. We don't have Facebook but my sister in law does and she is a member of the Facebook group so I will get her to ask. I will also email the colorectal nurse.
I feel terrible so I really hope my husband doesn't catch it :x::x:
