If I get COVID 19, do I have higher health risk if I had 75% of liver removed 4 months ago having NETS. I'm on Sandostatin injections monthly?


Surgery can suppress a patient’s immune system for weeks for reasons that are not well-understood. Many months following surgery should be enough time for your immune system to recover. In addition, if you are otherwise healthy and have normal blood counts, you are likely to have an average risk of COVID19-related complications and serious illness.
