Hi everyone...it has been a busy day here. The kids started school this morning...then I was off to get chemo #4 at 9:30am. I had so much on my mind that i forgot to put the numbing cream on the port site. So i got there...they accesed the port...i won't forget the cream next time...ouch. Then they ran a cbc...they did one on Friday and everythijg looked good. While they waited for the results they started the antinausea med and fluids. I was there about an hour when the nurse came back and said no chemo...my wbc was 1.8. I go back on Friday for another blood draw...the dr is considering Neulasta. I need to read up on it...he was also considering adding Avastin...don't know if that is off the table for now. I was told to just go home and rest...and we will see what the numbers are on Friday. I also need to be extra vigilant about watchijg for any signs of infection...i might need an antibiotic as well.
Anyone else on Neulasta?
