Covid whilst on chemo?
Hi all, Im hoping for some reassurance here I suppose. My partner is currently on Folfox and Cetuximab and has been for some time with very good responce. However, today he has tested positive for Covid. I tested positive 2 days ago. We dont live together all the time as I work in Wales while he works in England, but we had spent the Easter weekend together. I feel awful about ‘giving’ him Covid as we have been extremely carefull and have managed to keep him safe throughout until now 😔.
Currently he is feeling fine appart from a tickly cough. He has had 4 vaccinations already, the most recent in February. His local trust have been on the ball today and he will receive a 5 day course of oral Anti-virals tomorrow. He would have been due treatment tomorrow so I suppose his immune cells are at their ‘highest’ if thats going to be of any help.
I suppose Im looking for reassurance from others that may have been in this position? Im trying not to get myself worked up but its quite difficult when Im not there with him just now 😢.
Thanks for any word to put my mind at rest (hopefully 🙈)
