      Oh yes I can. Each delay just caused more stress. I felt that the cancer was just taking control. Once my counts finally rebounded they cut my dosage down by 25% and now I get a shot 2 days later to help with the counts. I'll be anxious to see if my counts rebound next treatment. The bizarre think is I usually feel fine and assume I'm ready for treatment. Boy I do have stress! Good luck

      I have treatment canceled due to low counts. It's was stressful but my dr changed my treatment schedule and then finally put me on a schedule where I get a shot 24 hours after chemo is done, called neulasta (sp). It has helped tremendously first time counts went from 6.4 to 9.8 to 9.5 and this past week to 8.5. Ask your dr about it. Have a great day
