Greetings to everyone. I was DX in Feb 2011 and started on 400 of G. In June was reduced to 300G because the side effects were bad. Bone Marrow = good. CBC with WBC low around 2.7- 3.1 Hct and HGB chronic anemia around 29 and 10 respect. My ANC (absolute neutrophil count) has been around 1.5 with one dipping to 1.0 .
Now for the reduction. My ANC dropped to 0.8 so they held my meds and restarted at 200mg of G. It has been one week and my ANC is 3.5 and my WBC are 5.2 this is a first in the entire time. I get repeat CBC for the next 4 weeks and then see him to see if this is what will be. Had my BCR & FISH done on the 12th and they are not back, that will be interesting since I only have every reached a 1 log reduction.
Thanks for being here, it is nice to review these things with people who know I just need to vent sometimes and review lab work for ideas or to see if these reductions have happened in the past and worked.
