    After you are finished with treatments, how long are you considered immunocomprimised?

    I have at least 6 months to a year more of treatments but I am worried about all of this virus going around and thinking about will I always have to be on guard about everything, flu, colds, etc.? Will I have to walk around with a mask, stay away from people for good?

      I hope to find out one day. Until then, it has been mask and gloves for the past 4 1/2 years. Caveat: I had a stem cell transplant and am purposefully immune suppressed to control rejection issues.

      Well, that's not encouraging. But, better safe than sorry. I guess this is going to be our new world.

      I'm a little late with this but hope it helps. I agree with MLT. Also, pick your times for anything. In the 4 yrs that I've been on chemo, I've not gotten a anything. I've not deprived my self either. Just be safe, not sorry.
