    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Low white cell count and then the meds to fix it after every treatment. This caused sever joint pain. Then I was hospitalized for fever which they thought was infection. Then after placing me in a coma and my blood pressure reaching 30 5 doctors were in my room arguing in front of my wife when one says and her i am quoting my wife "I don't give a XXX what you say one of the doctors says to the others, you hung 18 different antibiotics and none of them have worked. I am going to give him steroids because he is having an allergic reaction to one of the cemo meds and there is not a dame thing you can do bi going to do it now before he dies in the next few minutes. Now the drug that almost killed leis still causing me pain in my muscle joints and by neuropathy
