Now that I am off the chemo and in remission I find that I am getting sick all the time. More than I was when I was on the chemo it seems like (maybe because I am leaving the house more).
How long does it take for your immune system to build back up again? I literally have been catching a cold/sore throat/etc. every couple of weeks since finishing the chemo. I know I haven't been off it for terribly long, but I'm getting pretty tired of this.
I want to be able to get my life back to normal and get a job. I was applying for a few jobs online today while having a sore throat, earache and a mild fever. I don't want to push it, but I need to get my life back, both for financial reasons, and for my sanity ;)
I'd love to know what other people's knowledge and experience on the subject is.
Thanks so much :)
