I have had 7 of 12 Folfox treatments. The last few times my platlets were low at the 2 week mark, so everything was rescheduled an extra week...out to 3 weeks.
Last Friday after 2 weeks my platlets were at 50. Sorta makes me wonder what they wete at the 1 week mark. I knew they must be low because I got covered in big bruises! There,was some talk of a blood transfusion and then my Dr said to just reschedule for the next Friday. I went Friday and my platlets were up to 80, but still not the needed 100. Dr is out on vacation all week so they scheduled me out for another week. That will make 4 weeks in between treatments.
I asked for something earlier in the week, but all the chemo chairs are full. I am wondering if I should call the oncologist on call and see if I can get in earlier? There is a whole 2nd side with lots of chairs, but they like me to stay on the side of my oncologist. I am just a bit antsy because my oncologist does not really like going 3 weeks since all the research is based on a 2 week schedule...and now I am being put off 4 weeks. And she is out and not aware of it.
