Re: Currently on FEC chemotherapy, worried about immune system and covid-19
Thanks for posting. It’s understandable that you’re asking about boosting your immunity with GCSF injections.
It’s not possible to give clarity on your situation, as treatment is tailored to the individual. There are currently no national guidelines to say when the injections should be given.
However, you are included in the group of people at a higher risk of contracting coronavirus.
Do contact your treatment team again to discuss this further.
