Hi. My dad has NHL Stage 4 large Bcell lymphoma. He has had only one treatment, but says that his energy level is going up, and b/c he is a work-a-holic, he wants to start roaming around again, like going to the store, off to pay bills, bank, etc. But, I'm a little concerned b/c his WBC are like 1,700...and normal I think is 4000- 10000. So I'm a little worried. Should I suggest he not go out, and stay bed rested? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Has anyone been through this before, and what are were some of the consequences once infection was set in. Thank you for any help and replies.
