Hey all, just wondering if I could get some help with my tests today. I received my latest blood test results today (been on Gleevec for 9.5 weeks). And they are starting to get low now. Previously, they were hanging on in the normal territory (last test was 3 weeks ago) but now they are low-ish.
This is how I'm looking so far:
What concerned me though is that she said I had "low lymphocytes" - she didn't say how low but she did want to repeat the test in 2 weeks, which has me a bit worried. I've been feeling very tired for the past few days (not really any symptoms of a virus that I know of though).
Does anyone know what low lymphocytes could mean?
Also, did anyone have this type of myelosuppression in the beginning but then their counts bounced back up? Or is this how it is likely to stay (or get even lower?)? I thought I had escaped this side effect, but it seems like my counts are just marching down very slowly...
