Does anyone know a good website that explains what blood work is done before/during chemo and what the normal ranges are? THANKS!

    I don't know of a web site, but don't be scared to ask your Dr. or the nurse's that take care of you. I'm sure they will be happy to explain. All the blood work that I have had so far, is so the Dr. knows my white and red count.. if I'm low on Iron.. a CEA (cancer count)and many other reasons. It lets him make good medical adjustments or advice when it is needed. You can also ask for copies of your records so you can keep your own records. But ask the nurse or Dr. to explain. That's what they are there for. ~ Wanda
