Is it OK to visit someone w/LC if you are getting a cold?
My mother was dx w/NSCLC Sept. 30. On Oct. 13 she had an upper R lobectomy. The mass (adenocarcinoma) was 3.5 cm. In a sampling of 11 lymph nodes, cancer was found in one. She had a rough time recovering. She was weak physically going in and spent 6 weeks post op in a rehab center. She just went home 11/29. I am scheduled to fly to see her tomorrow night, and feel as though I'm getting a chest cold! Should I postpone? I certainly don't want to put her at risk, but at the same time I feel as though she shouldn't live in a bubble either. I know she's had all her flu/pneumonia shots.
I'm sorry my first post on this board is so selfish…it is out of concern for my Mom. I know nothing about the vulnerability in this situation. Thank you in advance.
