Thank you for all of the advice about platelets. It makes me very nervous being so low, and I am afraid I will drop lower as in one of my later chemos I kept dropping until the 5th week after chemo. I sure hope this time is not the same. And that time I had only dropped at the lowest to 69,000.
I am getting the tests daily if I drop and if I don't drop, they test my blood every other day.
A few days ago I went up from 26,000 to 32,000 but then dropped back down to 25,000 and then yesterday tested the same at 25,000. Also my whites continue to drop.
I wear my mask when I go to the cancer center and my oncologist's nurse said there is no need to wear a mask. But I do anyway, I know how easily I catch colds and coughs and I am not taking any chances. Other than going to the center I just stay at home for now.
Hugs to all.
