Still working to recover on my blood counts following my 6th chemo which was on Nov 2nd.
It is 4 weeks tomorrow since that 6th chemo.
Here are my latest counts as of today:
White cells went from 1.3 to up to 1.8......should be 4-10
So that is alittle bit of progress for which I am grateful-and hopefully a sign the recovery is kicking in. :) They told me to come back in one week for another bloodtest. My restrictions will be lifted when counts have returned to a reasonable level.
Susafina emailed me to not exercise under 50,000 platelets, I had been using the stationary bike for 25-30 minutes per day. I did stop after Thursday, as I was not feeling all that well, and had some chest pains alittle bit later that evening.
I figure maybe my body needs all of it's energies to rebuild the cells-so I am holding off for now. And I started drinking 2 Ensures a day, or a protein drink and an Ensure etc.
I hope they keep climbing now.
