I think that if you really need to see your friend, if you wear a mask and wash your hands as soon as you get there you should be okay.

You may or may not still be contagious. If he is getting chemo why not wait until you are healthy to visit him just to be safe. One more week won't hurt.

If he is on chemo then wait to see him. The chemo drugs can lower your resistance to infections. Your friend doesn't need to deal with another problem.

If you wear an influenza infection mask over your face and then do not get near the patient's bed or hug or shake hands with the patient then things would be fine.

If you can not do all of these things all of the time you are visiting, then you need to wait until you are sure you are completely well.

If he is on chemotherapy, his immune system will be pretty weak. Otherwise, it might be OK. Call him to find out if he is on chemo and can see visitors.


Hope
People being treated for cancer, or any serious disease, have weakened immune systems -- meaning they are at high risk to catch any illness they come into contact with.
Given that they already have a serious disease, catching whatever you are sick with too, can possibly put them into an extremely risky health condition that they may be too weak to recover from....like a cold turning into pneumonia.

Do your "visiting" on the phone while you have a cold. Being considerate is being a true friend.

Either delay your visit, or wear a face mask.

Patient on chemo will catch anything and have trouble fighting it off. It coulld even lead to delays in his treatment.

When you do go, ensure you take basic steps like making sure you have washed hands ets sto reduce risk of you passing anything on.

In the meantime, a phone call, and send a good book or magazine!
