The way I deal with the " inevitable death by BC, probably" has been " well, death is inevitable for everyone, and anyone could get hit by a bus tomorrow", so my fate is not much worse. Somehow it makes me feel better. Silly, but i will take whatever calms my mind.
Shopping always maike me feel better. :-) Although do feel guilty for creating more waste potentially, well, i am not perfect and I forgive myself. :-)
Hope you are feeling better. Don't be too hard on yourself. I'd say you are in pretty good shape if only thing you got was bruise. Many could have broken bones and etc. My friend's mum slipped and fell when getting out of car, thatmaci broke her hip and she is only 61.
I went thru questions on Vaccine as well,. pharmacist said to talk to MO, MSJ nurse says go for it without any hesitation. resident MO googled to see whether the virus is live or not. Said ok to proceed if virus is not live. My own research matched what you are saying, that vaccine may not work because immune system is comprised. I wonder whether you can do a through blood work, to see whether you are back to pre chemo level.
Also, why not try to ask whether school is open to give an exception on the vaccine. assuming the program does have any in hospital sessions the first 6 months? if they do, then it will be harder to go without.
My hubby is a nurse as well, who just finished nursing program a year ago. PM me if you think he can be help with questions you have etc.
For radiation, look into Mepitel film if you have sensitive skin. New Zealand study confirmed it will help reduce the radiation burns significantly. Not all places carries them. but it is available is some specialty pharmacies, often close to hospitals. the manufacture website also have a video on how to apply it.
