Discussions that mention neupogen

The cells that fight infection are the white cells, so I'm guessing that's what you're talking about. They could've given her Prednisone, Neupogen, IVIG or several other meds to raise it.

It is worrisome that she isn't making those cells, but they wouldn't know that unless they did a bone marrow biopsy - did they do that?

It sounds like her body has been through so much that it's taking longer than they expected to get better.

I hope she recovers soon.
