Yes: Congratulations! not only is it ok to get B12 injections, now is a good time to take a variety of supplements to strengthen & support your immune system, as unfortunately immune function can be suppressed by chemotherapy. I advise a quality multivitamin & herbs like astragalus & medicinal mushrooms, esp. Coriolus versicolor.See http://www.Lef.Org/protocols/cancer/alternative_cancer_therapies_08.Htm.
