    I asked that question on Thursday when in having my chemo. I was told it takes 3 months after all treatment finishes ( including radiation) until the immune system recovers. That scared me - takes me right up until October. I don’t want to even contemplate keeping my 4 kids out of school until then but I guess if I have to I will.
