Quick question I am on rebif … my son has a stomach bug, is it likely I will get this? Tummy lil off now but that could be just the simple fact of cleaning the sick up. Thanks
Not on Rebif, but I don’t think it makes any difference to your chances. If you’re in the same house with someone with a tummy bug, I’d say that unfortunately, yes, it’s likely you will get it - but not because of Rebif.
Hope you’re lucky, and manage to get away with it.
I don’t think you are any more likely to get the stomach bug than any mum is who has spent the night cleaning up after a poorly little boy (hope he gets better soon btw). I used to be torn between wanting to hug my son to make him feel better and not wanting his germs lol!! I was on Rebif for four years, as you know, and didn’t get any more stomach bugs than usual for three of those.
This year, however, I have already had five and I haven’t been close to anyone who has had them. I do work in a high school though but not in close contact with the students. I think my immune system has been severely compromised this year (oh joy) and I’m hoping I can make it to Christmas without any more. I’ve already had a day off with one this academic year and that wasn’t the plan at all
Fingers crossed that Charlie gets well soon and that you and hubby stay fit and well for the foreseeable future.
