      I was told it had nothing to do with diet or other behavior. Chemo lowers platelets. The only thing they had me do is wait a week.

      I have had problems with my hemoglobin for years. If mine drops below 10 I must have an injection to boost the hemoglobin. They usually start the shot on a lower dose until they feel they've got the right dose for you. They had to increase my dose once. I still have a problem occasionally but not like before the shots.

And I do have to warn you if you need one, they do sting.
