Topic: Increased platelet count!
My dad just finished the 2nd cycle of chemptherpay today.
Strangely his platelets went up again to 467! (had not given papaya extract and this just proves that alot of things are not related). The Oncologist didnt seem concerned and said that chemotherapy can cause this.
I have read some artciles about GEM causing a rebound thrombocytosis (increased platelet count).
Next week is his CT scan - am praying for some good news.
Has anyone had this effect with chemotherapy (escpecially GEM) on this board?
