I am so confused and everyone seems to have a different answer. I had asked my oncologist about taking precautions with the bathroom at home during chemo pump infusions. She said don't worry that isn't the type of chemo you are going to be on. My first chemo was two weeks ago and the infusion nurse said it was alright to have sex 48 hrs after pump disconnect and to double flush while on pump and 48 hrs after. This started me researching and darned if I can find agreement. Just read an article that the person's infusion nurse told him to have protected sex, double flush, double wash clothes and dishes all during chemo. Now I am worried.
What does everyone here do?
