Despite feeling great, I wasn't able to be infused for Round 4 today. My platelets had sunk from 104 last time to 63. My WBC has gone down to 2.4 (I started out at 2.9), but it's the platelets that have taken a nose dive from a starting point of 179.
I told them I wanted to power on through if at all possible, but the oncologist said no way. If the platelets went down further after this treatment I could be in serious trouble. So my infusion is being put off for a week, and they are considering reducing the oxaliplatin dose going forward.
I'm frustrated, and worried that I won't derive maximum benefit with a lower dose. But it appears that there is basically nothing I can do to bolster the platelet production.
