@nutshell88 , I wouldn’t worry at all. Just shower after you get out of the pool.

For the person who has had the chemo, you are the health hazard. You have an immune system (a badly behaved one …. but it’s there) the person who’s had the chemo – their immune system will be almost none existent – basically you are a big germy plague carrying disease monster in comparison the them.

But as stumbler said. Shower and make sure the pool and your friend are both washed off.

yeah sure my immune is bizarre in an unknown way. but glad it doesnt spread.
my question wasnt about my friend its about the chemo itself because im not sure if it could effect my immune system but as you said the pool and my friend is well washed off hehe and i eat salads and foods she makes it never concerned me. but i just worry these things 😔 thats ive never been on ms treatment for 13 year ir so
