Are you getting cancer treatments during COVID-19?

@colleenyoung I had a blood test scheduled for this Friday at the local Mayo Family Clinic and called today to check to see the status and if it might be cancelled or if I should still come in. The appointment nurse said they were cancelling all non emergency appointments due to the COVID-19 situation so they can focus all of their resources on emergency type care. She also said they are thinking 6 to 8 weeks until appointments can be rescheduled. On the bright side…gives me more time to work on lowering my weight and my HDL, LDL, Triglycerides and A1C numbers 🙂

I had a transplant in 2018 and have weekly labs to monitor my medications levels and CBP as well. I have been using LabCorp and they have adopted my quarantine in my vehicle policy. I have been wearing a mask using a Clorox wipe to open the door and clean the kiosk to log in. They call me on my phone so I don’t have to wait around potentially sick people in the waiting room. I am immune suppressed and have stopped my labs until this pandemic is controlled.
