Flu jab!

Re: Flu jab!

Ha, I know what you mean re side effects!

 

I've had flu once, the year after I had chemo, it wasn't nice 😞 but once in 50 years is not so bad so I don't think I'll have it either.  Don't like to think of even more chemicals in my body.  Probably being silly but hey! 😛

Re: Flu jab!

Hi mystery mouse. To be perfectly honest probably not. I've never had flu, I'm having a months break from Tamoxifen due to the side effects I think I just want to leave well alone.

Re: Flu jab!

Thanks for replying tgregory.  Have posted in nurses section to see what they say.

 

Are you going to have it?

Re: Flu jab!

Hi
I've been offered the flu jab this year and didn't have chemo or radiotherapy just a mastectomy and Tamoxifen so I would be interested to know people's thought too.

Flu jab!

So, am I correct in thinking that if we are long post chemo and active treatment and only on hormone treatments now we don't need to have the flu jab?

 

I was offered the flu jab and had it before starting chemo back in 2014 but it's never been mentioned to me since so I assume by reading the blurb that its only for people with immune systems which are compromised and mine is oviously not now.  

 

Don't think I would have it though, just being curious.
