hmm... I kept revisiting this thread, many times I wanted to share my experience but hesitated thinking probably people is not gonna believe me. BUTT, oh well, even if one person believes me and I can help that ONE person, it's all worth it.
So, I did 13 rounds of FOLFOX, full dosage of Oxi. I never missed one round, I got all my treatments on time - one time my platelet count was at about 55 just three days before infusion and the doctor wanted to put a hold, but I got it back up on the infusion day to 110. I also didn't get any shots to help get my counts up. I really didn't want anymore needles and side effects.
Starting round 3 my platelets started to drop and by the 9th round, my WBC went down as well, but they never gone down to the point they would delay treatment. I was able to keep my platelets up with a tea that my mom made for me at home, nothing funky but the ingredients are not that easy to get.
I'm Asian, so the recipe we had was peanut skins (not the peanut, if you put in peanuts, you get a nasty oil layer on top of the tea and you don't want that) with black dates. The question from folks in North America may wonder where do you get the peanut skins? Well I ran a search on Amazon, and I found a few shops selling them. I emphasize NOT the WHOLE peanut, just the skin and better not buy a whole bag of peanut and peel the skin off, just not worth the time. And you also wanna order black dates from Amazon. You put in a FULL adult man palm size of peanut skins with 5 rice bowls of water with about 10 black dates (better slit it on the sides to give it more flavor), bring it to a boil and let it on medium heat until it looks like there's only one bowl is left.
Drink it once everyday. If you put enough dates, it won't taste bad. It is tiny little bit bitter which is often covered by the sweetness from the dates. I personally did not really believe in it, I just drank it to calm my mom down... until my platelet went down to 55 and I got it back up to 110 in 2 days drinking two bowls of this tea daily.
So here is my sharing, in case there's anybody who wants to give it a try. Both are edible stuff so it's nothing that will hurt you. The worst is just not working as well in you as it did in me. It mainly works for platelets, WBC was a bit tougher, I just ate a lot of protein and drank massive amount of date tea...
