Low Neutrophil count after first Chemo treatment

Hi My wife had her first round of Valcade, Dexa, and Thalidomide last week and today had a blood test ahead of her treatment tomorrow. However, she had a call from the hospital this afternoon saying that her neutrophils was low and not to come into treatment tomorrow. Has anyone had this in their treatment so early on?

Thanks

Matthew

Hi Matthew,

Sorry you’ve not had a reply. I’ve had problems with low neutrophils, but that was after stem cell transplant rather than induction treatment. I think if it’s a small delay, it’s perfectly fine, I know I missed a week of induction treatment as I had a holiday booked, and that was no problem, so hopefully your wife will be absolutely fine too. How is she doing now?

Hi Greg she is fine its just you get your mind all ready for the marathon and fall at the first hurdle.  Hopefully when she goes for her blood test on Tuesday they will have recovered.

Regards

Matthew
