    Low platelets Any suggestions for raising them?

    I haven't gotten a treatment since January 11 due to low platelets, they're bopping between the mid 50s &low 70s. Besides the frustration I'm getting concerned about such a long break. Anyone else have this issue and/or have suggestions on how to bring the count up. white &red counts are good

      Hi SueRae, My friend that has stomach cancer is having severe problems with RBC, platelets, and hemoglobin. He gets transfusions (I'm not sure if it is whole blood or just platelets) before every chemo session. Have you talked to you oncologist `

      Sorry, one of my cats submitted my post for me before I was done.

      Have you talked to your oncologist about getting a blood transfusion so you can resume chemo?
