Re: low platelets - chemo not an option

Have had a lot of chemo over the years. now on continous chemo. have had to miss chemo because of very low neutraphils. bur not platelets.
Have had transfusion for low red cells and I have an injection of neulaster after each chemo to boost white cells. Don't know if this imfomation is of any help.

low platelets - chemo not an option

has anyone had secondaries and been unable to have chemo due to very low platelets? and if so, has anyone been given thrombopoietins to increase the platelets?
