    went today to get a chemo treatment,, as of today,, I only had 3 treatments to go,, as you all know,, we have to have labs done before anything is done,, and when I saw the doctor,, she told me,, "no treatment today,, WBC is low",, of course I was not a happy person,, but I know it was for my own good, not to get treatment,, This just delays my last treatment, which was to be on March 31st!,, now I have no idea when the Last treatment will be.
    Next Tues,, 24th,, I will go again,, and hopefully get chemo..

      Were you able to get treatment on Tues? I know it's frustrating to have to wait, but it's best. My WBC dropped so low one time after a treatment I wound up in the hospital for a week taking IV drip antibiotics, that cost me a lot of time.

    well,, it's been awhile since I posted anything, or been on the site. back in Dec.. I was working,, getting treatements,, and got sick, and had to be hospitalized.. the chemo was not the reason I got sick,, I have been in and out of the hospital a couple of times,, and always had to have antibotics,, and lots of fluids,, and over time all this built in my system,, and I ended up having C-Diff! it was bad,, and my large intestenes,(sp) was so inlarged that they almost burst,,and I was in critical condition.. in isolation,,ICU,,for about 4=5 days,, and then went to regular room,, I was in the hospital for 18 days!! I've been out now for about 3 weeks,, getting treatments now,, no problems,, I'm not working either,, so maybe -that's a good thing,, but staying at home everyday,, is not fun,, except for the days I have appts,, and some weeks it's everyday!! hope all is well with everybody on here,, I'm doing good,, no more C-Diff!!

      We are glad you're doing better. The hospital is no fun for sure.

    Chemo has started,, Still able to work my 2 jobs,,I took dexamethasone for 3 days after the treatment. I'm hoping that that was why I didn't get sick,, I could eat, and keep food down!

      Glad to hear your chemo wasn't hard on you. I got violently sick and couldn't work for two days, then didn't feel good during the rest of the week. But this was 27 years ago, there are much better anti Nausea drugs available now. what type of chemo are you taking?

      I'm getting 4 rounds of Cytoxan, & Adriamycin,, that's every 2 weeks ,for 2 months,, , then switch to 4 rounds of Taxol every 2 weeks,,for 2 months,, That's the plan if my WBC stays up,, which is already not good before starting chemo,, I get a Nulasta shot the day after each treatment.. and a Vit B-12 shot once a month,,, They said,, that the treatment I get on the 30th,, might have a bigger effect on me,, like losing the hair,and might not bounce back as quick, just gotta wait and see,, thanks for asking,, june
