Re: Follicular Gd 1 Stg 4
I wish there was something we could eat or drink which would raise our wbc levels. Mine is around 3.1 since treatment and even that concerns me. I never had to have Neulasta but have heard it is painful. As my lymphoma is indolent and therefore incurable, so they say, I do think what treatment I will go for next time. I might try and avoid the Fludara as that is a real wbc killer! But, as I said before, most of the treatments seem to have a similar effect. My nodes too responded very quickly to treatment. I had numerous (never was told how many that is!) enlarged nodes in mesentery, the largest being 2.5 centimetres. I will have a scan in early September to see if they are still small enough to be acceptable. I hope you get stronger as time goes on. It seems to be a matter of weighing up the importance of the treatment against the negative affects it can have on the body.
