I was scheduled for blood tests this morning and chemo infusion this afternoon. Results came back - neutrophils are down now to 0.7 from last week's 0.9.
So home I went. I got a phone call a few hours later from the cancer centre to say that another blood test has been scheduled for Thursday followed by an appointment with my oncologist(I wasn't scheduled to see her this round) and then chemo infusion on Friday morning.
I'm confused. How am I supposed to double my neutrophil count in 48 hours, when it is lower than last week?
I've looked and haven't really found anything diet wise to boost WBC that I'm not already eating. The helpful suggestions already posted here are more for platelets which I am happy to say are now back up in the low normal range.
Still hoping someone has some info to share...
mobAuto correct seems to prefer necrophilia over neutrophils....
