Because the Hydrea 2000mg and the Sprycel 140mg worked so well, today's blood work showed platelets at 66,000. White count is holding at 4,200 and hemoglobin is down to 9.
First, no one told me to stop taking the aspirin, but common sense tells me that would be a ridiculous choice to continue. Second, I am due for a Sprycel 140 mg, that I am almost afraid to take. I am to re do blood work in the morning, but fearful of platelets dropping to even more dangerous levels. I do have a medium case of petechiae, on lower legs, ankles, and upper thighs. Then, just in the past few hours, my ankles have nearly doubled in size, so far the swelling is reserved for the ankles and lower legs.
No aspirin I can work that one out, but I am quietly thinking the 140 Sprycel is not the best idea for this evening and should I be heading for the ER because of the swelling. I hate to be a hypochondriac, under different circumstances, I would poo poo this entire mess off, but unfortunately as we all know, we do not live under regular circumstances. Any advice/comments I would appreciate.
