Hello Ladies...

My youngest son has Chicken Pox...I had them in third grade (seems like a lifetime ago, but I remember it well!)....

My last Chemo was on May 5th...Do I need to still be concerned more than anyone else? Would I still be considered immuno suppressed at this point???

You should contact your chemo doc. You can still get shingles. I do recall being around someone with shingles but they didn't live in the same house as me so it may be different.

Laurie....Yes, call your chemo dr. as you can get Shingles. I have had them and they can be nasty!! You will want to take any precautions that you can!!

Hoping you avoid the pox!

I am aware of the shingles risk....but as a Mom I have to take care of him....

My question is that am I MORE susceptible than any other Mom taking care of her child?

Is my Immuno supressed period over??

Sounds like we can't truly give you medical advice, therefore, call your doctor to be sure.

Better to be safe than sorry...
