I started Gazyva 6/6 had treatments 6/6 & 6/7 started with congestion and cough 6/9 and tested positive 6/10. I have all vaccine and boosters under pfizer. I got the monoclonal 6/13 and felt better no symptoms as of 6/14. Did a home test that came up negative 6/15 however drs office did a pcr test and that was positive. I have had 2 more since that are still positive. I feel fine, but still showing positive. Hugs and prayers to you that you get better every day

I also have AML and recently tested positive for Covid even after I’d been triple vaccinated. It was a very mild case fortunately. Sore throat, headache, and, as always, fatigue. All in all I was very lucky. I got through it with no real ramifications
