Blood counts

My husband had a stem cell transplant in March. His blood counts have plateaud. His platelets are never higher than 60. They have been in the same range for four weeks. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

DBCL - Here we go

So, where to start?  Waiting too long?  Ignoring signs......  Yup that was the begining....  Until one day my leg was so swollen and painful that I had to go to the ER.  Never a good place to be unless you need them!  So, long and short get diagnosed with DBCL.  Learning more about the chemo and lab side than I ever wanted to know.

I have had ultrasound, throat scope, CAT scan and finally needle biospy.  SquaaSquamous Cell Carcinoma was found.  I am waiting for a Pet Scan and it is not scheduled till next week.  I fell like every test takes a week to get scheduled and I am becoming more and more aprenhensive.


Is there anything to do to make things move faster.  The cancer would found in a Lymph Node in my neck and I feel like the longer this takes the worse the cancer is getting.

Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma

I was diagnosed with this form of Cancer which is in the Childhood Cancer class at the age of 31 in May 2018. 6months of weekly Chemo treatments completed in 01/19. This has been the hardest battle of my life. Now the battle begins to see if the Cancer will return, I pray it does not, my chances look really good, I must stay positive it has kept me going this long. I pray for anyone who has been battling or battled Cancer, people don't understand how hard Cancer really is until they get it.


Let's inspire each other and SURVIVE!!!



Much love,

Olfactory Neuroblastoma - 40 yo Woman - Seeking advice/connection


I’m a 40 yo female with (rare) diagnosis of right nasal cavity esthesioneuroblastoma or olfactory neuroblastoma, preliminary Hyams Grade 3, presumed Kadish Stage A.  On April 9th I underwent a craniotomy by an expanded endoscopic approach for resection of tumor. Negative margins were achieved. Plan for radiation therapy to follow.

Any one have similar diagnosis of ONB? I’m looking for any general advice or support? Has anyone used proton beam therapy instead of IMRT for radiation?

Can anyone help me with expectations on Cisplatin with 5FU?

I have finished 7 weeks of radiation, with 3 concurrent doses of Cisplatin. I have been prescribed 3 more "follow-up "seek and destroy"" dosages of Cisplatin with 5 FU.

I handled the radiation and Cisplatin reasonably easily. But, they're telling me the follow up doses are dispensed over a 4-day period. A "ball" goes on my belt on a Monday, and slowly delivers Cisplatin and 5FU into my blood port.

I'm wanting to know how people handled and dealt with this treatment. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
