Topic: husband's WBC count too low for chemo
Does anyone know how to get the WBC count up? He had this problem even before he started the chemo last week. Then, a few days after the initial bloodwork, his level was normal and he was able to have treatment. This week the same thing--he schlepped all the way to Sloan only to be turned away because his ANC count was only 1000, which also results in low WBC. The term is Neuropenia. Anyone know what to do about this?
