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

      Heck, I'm 7+ years out from the end of treatment, and I'm not going outside very often. Siting in my bedroom at my work computer right now. My grocery store allows order online and pickup. And I've picked up food carryout from some local independent restaurants. I'm probably fine, and my region hasn't surged...yet. I worked through treatment, and right now I'm taking a lot of the precautions I did back then. I had a sign in my cubical that I was immunosurpressed. And I have LOTS of little bottles of hand sanitizer.

      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.

      Child of God, can you get Neulasta shot the day after chemo? Now they put a patch on your arm that gives you the meds the next day. I know your chemo has to be at least 14 days apart to get that med.

      I think in this situation it is better to talk with your doctor. If you're worried about your treatment then it is better to discuss with your doctor maybe he can arrange an emergency appointment for you.
      Best of luck!
