Now I was told that just a kiss on the cheek was the only thing I could do with my partner. She has been very understanding and supportive throughout our ordeal. I have copmleted 6 treatmenst of R CHOP and the C Scan came back negative. Now.....I was also told that it takes 3 months for the Chemo to leave my system. Just when is it safe to have unprotected sex with my partner?
Thanks, Den

I don't know who told you this. We were told that it was fine all along. My husband has finished 2nd week of R-chop and retuxin. Anyone else can offer more on this.

Thank you Linda. It was my "chemo nurse" who told me that. I'm sorry it took so long to get back to you. I hope your husband is doing well. Funny, I thought that I wouldn't get a reply to this....thanks again.
