We arrived today for our last chemo treatment, but Steve's counts were too low so they sent us back home. His WBC is 1.4 and Lymphocytes, 300 and Neutrophils, 700.
Took him 2.5 weeks to get the nausea under control and then his throat was burning so he's using the feeding tube but not as often as he should/could. Til now, that is, as he says he will start doing a shake every 2 hours if it will help boost his numbers so he can get his last chemo dose in this week!
I've just read where carrots, kale etc can strengthen WBC production. Does anyone know how long that would take? Loading up on WBC boosting foods? Does anyone know of another good one to boost numbers?
