Hi all normal my platelets dropped to 8 ! Was then given an injection in the tummy a day after each chemo, they dropped every time but within a week back to normal xx
They might be deciding if you are a candidate for g-csf injections. Sometimes they give them to everyone and other times only to those that need them. They are injections that you give yourself at home to prop up your blood counts. I had them but I still had to stop chemo early because of low blood counts.
I had my bloods taken yesterday, 8 days on from 1st chemo, and nurse has advised that my white blood cells are really low and low neutrophils. I was surprised at this as I have felt really ok, not really tired. Has anyone else hag this after just one session on FEC? Is there anything I can do to increase the count? I am already eating a lot of fruit, veg and Manuka honey. Any advise would be much appreciated.
