This Question Is About When I Can See My Grandkids After SCT If They Have A Cold And When With The Covid Virus Still Present.

My MM specialist said with the proper precautions I could see them even if they have a cold since I’m two years out from my SCT, but not until covid is gone. Here’s my question. If my husband and I have had our vaccines and if our son and his wife have had their vaccines, can we visit them and our grandchildren even if the two year old who goes to daycare and the new baby aren’t vaccinated. I would wear double masks and anything else I would need to wear if it would mean I could see them. if… read more

Zullum, I would talk with your doctor but It most likely won’t be until you have passed the 100 days re-eval and have had your childhood vaccines and your flu and COVID19 vaccines. Your Immune system is rebuilding during that time, if you were to get sick your body wouldn’t have the ability to mount a defense and it could every dangerous for you. I know how anxious you are but please but please be patient and check with your doctor! Have a good Sunday! Love, Marcia 🌸🌼🌻

Thank you Marcia. It’s been two years since my stem cell transplant. I’m on maintenance therapy and in remission at the moment. I receive my last last childhood immunization on 3/25 and have had my flu shot. I can’t have the measles vaccine since it’s live and they aren’t recommending the Shingrix so I’ll remain on the acyclovir. It has something to do with the ninlaro I take. That being said I plan to talk to my local oncologist as well as my MM specialist at Dana Farber again in June in regard to seeing grandkids and will, as always, follow their advice even if it’s what I don’t want to hear. I appreciate your input.❤️

We miss visiting with our grandchildren too. So our oldest daughter brings the 6 and 10 year old granddaughters to the house and visit from the driveway masked plus 20 feet social distance 😉 The youngest daughter sets up weekly video chats with 2 year old granddaughter and 1 month old grandson. It's not the same as holding and hugging them, but we've gotten our first COVID-19 vaccine and second in a couple of weeks so keeping our fingers crossed we can hold the baby soon 💞

I think you will get the go ahead to see your grands. I had to stop my vaccines due to complications with revlimid and gave only had my one CoVid shot. Bath oncologists gave me the green light to see grandkids.
It was wonderful and without issues! As always, your doctor knows you most (after yourself of course!),
