My counts stablized over the past few weeks with being off Tasigna and I am set to start Sprycel here by tomorrow. My neurophils have been holding steady normal over the past couple of weeks since getting the wbc shot.
My platelet counts over the past two weeks have been 107,000 and 109,000 and then last week went down to 90,000 since I have been off Tasigna for now my 7th week. I had my BMB yesterday and then had my blood drawn and showed my platelets are down to 58,000.
What is taking place that as soon as my platelets started to climb, which took 3 weeks, over the last 4 weeks of being off it went from 107, to 108, down to 90 last week and now 58,000 yesterday.
My doctor is going to give me a shot most likely this coming Tuesday to boost my platelets...I am wondering if over the last 2 weeks my stem cells have been damaged where it can't produce platelets like it did before?
Thoughts on this?
