My sister in law just found out she has shingles

My sister in law just found out she has shingles and I’m invited over for dinner tomorrow at her house but I have cancer and just finished my 5 th and final chemo last week and am doing internal radiation this week. Is it safe to be around here while I’m doing treatments ?

My question is regarding shingles/chickenpox and times of being contagious. 1st my mother in law was diagnosed with shingles, three weeks later my niece broke out with chickenpox who lives with my mother in law. My 8 week old daughter whom I breast feed was watched in the same home yesterday for 8 hours. My niece broke out later that night. I am concerned for my daughter. Is it just a waiting game now?

My daughter-in-law has just had an MRI and they found a shadow in the brain. She had the MRI because she has been battling the shingles for nearly 4 years and they want to put the implant in her spine to see if that helps the pain. What could this be?

My daughter-in-law is 7 months pregnant and I just found out a family member has been diagnosed with shingles. We plan to be together over the holidays and want to know if there is a risk. The person with shingles has had the vaccine, has been placed on medication, and has a facial rash with some eye swelling, but no blisters. I also have 2 grandchildren, aged 2 and 3, but need to check if they have been vaccinated.
