When I went for my consultation with the oncologist on Wednesday (22nd), I didn’t know what to expect. I was prepared for the worst case: my white blood cells might be too low and my body might not be reacting well to the chemo.
In fact, the opposite was true. My blood pressure was perfect and my blood levels were BETTER than pre-chemo measurements. These results mean the Neulasta shot I received the day after chemo gave my body the boost it needed. I’m good to go for round two of chemo on the 29th.
Somewhere out there is a scientist who spent long hours figuring out how to make an injected liquid that would create white blood cells. Thank you.
