Topic: Low platelets
My third round of Gemcitabine was cancelled today as my platelet reading was too low (76 yesterday and 69 today). Turns out that when I started, three weeks ago, the reading was also low at 102, but this was not commented on???? It's a bit concerning, to me anyway, that this has happened so early in the course (expected to be 7 weeks on, 1 week off). So, any suggestions to get the numbers up and keep them high? I wonder if my angina medication is contributing to this? Any thoughts?
I was due to have a (late) base line CT scan tomorrow but learned today that the scanner is broken so my scan has been cancelled. They are hoping to have it repaired at the weekend but heaven knows when I will be rescheduled.
All bad news comes in three's? I put money into Icesave at the start of the year. If you don't know, Icesave is part of the Icelandic bank that has gone bust today! Money should be safe but could take a few months to be repaid.
Roll on tomorrow.
