Quirky things after BC........
After reading about the cold & flu season which is racing up on us once more I thought I might share this odd occurrence. When I was about half way through chemo (Oct 2011) my loving family of boys all had a cold & cough which they prolonged to about three weeks each. I also caught the cold but thankfully mine only lasted about 5 days. But ......& heres the odd bit.....I have not had a cold (or flu) since then. I never think to ask my oncologists or rheumatologist when I see them why this is. I'm not complaining by the way !!!! God knows I have enough things going on without colds. Not sure if its because my autoimmune system is so screwed up .....I have some ill defined thing going on so I think they suppress the autoimmune sytem so it stops attacking me ( something like that........??) & I know of a teenager with autoimmune problems who also hasn't had a cols for years as well.
Has anyone else had strange but good occurrences like this ........?
