Hi. I start treatment this week for NHL. The good ol' R-CHOP regimen. My question: in interviewing oncologists, I had differing opinions on whether to receive the white blood cell booster shot after each chemo round. I'm young and in good health (well, minus the cancer bit). Should I push to receive the shot? Why or why not? Pros and cons?
I'm no medical professional. Any advice or recommendations? Further reading?
