Topic: New to site, from Texas
My husband was diagnosed with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma 4th stage in the spring and has received 4 rounds of chemo to date. He is being treated with gem/cid total of 6 hrs counting steroids and other prep meds etc. every other week. Staging this week showed about 30% shrinkage in mass. But, platelets had dropped in half since chemo two weeks before. What is the fastest way nutritionally to bring that count back up in order to take chemo again next week. They delayed it until the numbers come up.
