Blood Cancer and Booster Vaccine

Last reply: 18 days ago
Hello I was diagnosed with a blood cancer this year and I'm due to start treatment at the end of the year. I haven't received any information about the booster vaccine and when I asked in St James I genuinely didn't understand the answer. Does anyone know if people with blood cancers fall under the bracket of immunocompromised and should we expect to be offered the third vaccine? Thanks David

Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma - CBD Oil?

Last reply: 1 year ago
Hi, My father has just been diagnosed with Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma. Just want to speak with anyone with similar diagnosis. He is 69 years old and it seems to be in one node at the moment. Starting chemo next week. Just trying to reach out and see if anyone is in the same boat. Also wondering about the use of CBD oil in conjunction with CHOP chemotherapy, if anyone uses CBD oil or how have they found it? Thank you.

my father in law

Last reply: 1 year ago
My father in law is currently in a nursing home which is under lockdown. He has advanced non hodkins and appears to be getting very breathless which is a new thing. When we speak to him he is v breathless and has had a cough. We are waiting to speak to a nurse later about his O2 levels. We are obviously very concerned now as the community palliative team have not seen him since Nov and they cannot visit him. Has anyone got any suggestions as to what we can do? thanks.
