I was diagnosed with ALL last November. I have been in remission for a while now and am in the maintenance phase of my chemotherapy. I was taking Mercaptopurine for a few weeks when my counts started to drop. I have been off them for three weeks now and my counts are still dropping. They were stable for a week or so, then Tuesday they went up and today they went back down again. The doc thinks its only the meds but I am terrified that its the cancer coming back. Is there anyone out there that has experienced this as well? Am I just being paranoid? It just seems like three weeks is a long time. I got a bone marrow biopsy 4 weeks ago and everything was clear. Any and all advice would be appreciated.
