Topic: blood thinner whilst having radiation
I am on day 4 of xeloda and radiation treatment (6wk cycle). So far its all going well with no side effects, touch wood it stays this way!
My question is this, My Doctor has decided that I should be self injecting myself everyday with the blood thinner Clexane (enoxaparin sodium) as they are worried there is a risk of small blood clots in the portal and small veins around where my radiation is directed. I am worried about my platelet levels which are always very low and the risk of bleeding! has anyone had any experience or heard of this?
Many Thanks in advance
