I went to my first Oncologist appt yesterday and was told that I would have to have 4 6-hours chemo treatments 3 weeks apart. The doctor was asking about family history and I told her that my mother passed away at age 37, she had TB but died from the cure that they were using in 1957. It was air put into her with a needle, some air got into her blood stream and went to her heart and killed her. I was with her when she was contaigeous and they said that I could have dorment TB in my lungs and that giving me chemo could active the TB because of the white blood cells being lowered.
