My 66 year old father went in to the clinic feeling run down, and four days later is at OHSU Knight Cancer Center in Portland, Oregon to treat his AML diagnosis. They want to start 7+3 chemo induction on Thursday. Done several transfusions and his platelets went from 16 to 64.
I would be grateful for any info on what to expect from induction. Also, any advice on managing the insomnia and anxiety.
He has family with him full time, so we are trying to get as much info as possible.
Thanks and blessings.
