Chemotherapy - yorhonda

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Posted on September 9, 2012 View this journey (11 Experiences)

The first round of chemo had me in the hospital for about a month and a half. I was lucky and had great insurance at the time. The chemo was about a week long. The rebound took a little longer than a month. My white blood cells were so low they couldnt let me out because I had nothing to fight off infection with. After a month and it not moving up I had to receive shots to help my count come up so I could leave. After my first round I had eight more to go. Each was done in the hospital and I had to stay for a week. The additional rounds were not as strong as the first.
