Ive gone two weeks without having to get a blood transfusion. My rectum bleeding had come stop since getting high duty radiation. I guess my  body can't produce blood quick enough. So the plan is to get three units tomorrow. I also had a shot   To boost my hemo today.  Pray all this helps. Three months into my fifth year of stage four. So I guess this is part of the battle. Stay strong my friends. Jeff

Do what you gotta do. If not contraindicated have some dark veggies: blackberries, blueberries, beets maybe even a glass of dark red wine if ok'd by the docs to boost your hemoglobin production. 

Hang in there till things get better.

Are you feeling any better?  I had to get those things several times when in tx, and they did help.  Hope this gives you a boost as well.

Hugs coming your way~AA

Hey Jeff,


I really hope things soon turn around.  Five years at stage four.  Another tremendous success story.

Thanks everyone for all your support through this cancer battle. Without my wife and immediate family and all of you I'm sure I wouldn't be here typing. I see my onc again on tues so I will have new counts.   I'm always nervous now becauses there aren't too many alternatives

.thanks again Jeff
