I am worried......it is two weeks after my sixth chemo, and I had my bloodtest today.
Today my counts tested at:
Platelets are 26,000
I have had trouble with platelets now after chemo 4 and now 6. I usually drop more by the third week. The oncologist's nurse called today and told me my counts were low, and said if platelets go to 10,000 they do a platelet transfusion.
She also asked if I would like to get a hemoglobin transfusion now. She said it would make me feel better, or I can wait, but that if I drop below 8 my oncologist will definitely recommend a transfusion.
What does everyone think? And did any of you get this low in treatments, and what did you do?
They want me to come for another bloodtest CBC tomorrow to monitor my platelets.
Thank you so much.
