Re: does cancer show up in a routine blood test
the treatments you are doing are very harsh on one's system, what these drugs do is kill
all the bad cells along with killing the good, so obviously right now you are not feeling good. your blood cell counts will be very low so that will make your body feel very weak.
your white counts will be extremely low during treatment so you are prone to infections, be careful stay away from people who are sick, also know that your doctor will inject you with neupogen if necessary to bring those white cells up before each treatment.
it is a battle for you right now, just want to let you know when you're finished the treatments your counts will go back to normal and you'll start feeling yourself again.
it will take time, be patient but you will get to the point you were before you started treatments. best of luck to you, hang in there.
