Fri, Apr 17 6:41pm · COVID concerns: Working in healthcare & self-isolation rules in COVID-19

If your son works in health care and had COVID 19, I am not sure why he would even ask such a thing from you. I agree with your husband. Safer in separation. Your doctor would/should agree with the recommendation to live at separate residences while he recovers completely- no cough, no symptoms! and if he were to move back in, a place for him to change and disinfect his cellphone/ personal items and shoes prior to entering the home.

Absolutely agree with second opinion or third if needed. I am not sure why they would have told you that you are fine to work with people sick with this virus. 😡 You need to protect yourself and talk with your employer about what your options are. Strict adherence to PPE and hand washing may not be enough when they are saying that some may not have full symptoms but are still contagious. Right now you should be in a protective bubble. You do not need this virus! Speak to someone else and get what you need to protect yourself. Stay safe!

Hello. I'm sorry that your cousin has to go through this. She's young and strong, she can beat this thing! Chemo was draining from the moment in ran in my veins. Extra rest, hard candies to suck on for the iphosphomide/etopiside, Lots of visitors-even when she says she's fine, a hobby that doesn't take much energy for the low days, I'm happy to answer any questions you may have. Stock up on hats and or scarves- fun ones.

@eileen61 I am sorry that your employer is being difficult so soon. I am afraid that I am not much help though. My employers worked with me and I am easily replaced as FMLAs were priority for the float/resource nurses to cover. I did not do much research on the internet because I see on an almost daily basis how misleading it can be. My family/friends were asking when I was first diagnosed so I did go onto the American Cancer Society website to see what treatment options would be, but this still was not enough to know what the plan would be. I took everything one day at a time. Do what you can today to prepare for what may happen tomorrow. I totally understand how it makes you feel out of control. I hope that your treatment goes well and is successful. Please keep us up to date.

Thanks @colleenyoung ! I've been doing ok. I'm back to work full time, but need to be better about my exercises to restrengthen. No evidence of disease on last scans, so planning for the future!

I'm so sorry Alan. This puts you in an impossible position if you don't want surgery. Unfortunately if there is tissue that is necrotic, it's in the way of the tissue that could heal and an incubator for future infections. I understand you have already been through a lot, but surgery is your best solution. Have they gone through what would happen if it is left alone?

@alangodel please clarify: is it an avascular wound- meaning no blood supply to it? Then is surgery being proposed to also promote healing in this area to reconnect tissue that still has good blood supply?

@madstrong you can PM me any time- just to vent, for advice, or whatever. I'll try to respond within a day or two. You or your daughter.
