Hello ,
Six months after chop , Rituxin/chemo. I have walking pneumonia. Doctor say chemo reduces your immune system. An average cold can easily turn into pneumonia. My question is : Is there anything that you can take to build up your immune system after chemo? They found the pneumonia after doing a full cat scan. Thank God
I'm still in remission. All lymphnodes are normal.
Thanks,
John

Congratulations on your remission.The only advise I could give you would be to stay away from salads and food handled by the public,Also listen to your body and if you think you are getting a cold headache ,spot or anything go straight to doctor after all prevention is better than cure
