I KNOW IT IS A LITTLE LONG BUT PLEASE EVERYONE HAS ONE OF THOSE QUESTIONS THEY JUST NEED ANSWERED, THIS IS MINE PLEASE HELP ME OUT! Here are the facts: -I am getting a chemotherapy treatment of doxorubicin and ifosfomide. -I get chemo every three weeks, my first dose was the 10th of july and my last was the 31st. -The first time (july 10th) I took neuprogen and was never neutropenic. -This time (july 31st) I also took neuprogen and went to the doctor today and discovered I am "very neutropenic". -It is the 10th day after treatment and the blood counts are supposed to be the worst from the 10th-14th day after treatment. -I was supposed to go to a camp for kids with cancer on sunday for a week but my doctor said I cannot go unless my counts improve (I can still be neutropenic just not as neutropenic as I was today). -I am still taking neuprogen. My questions are: Will my blood counts improve by thursday (the next time I go to the doctor)? What can I do to help raise my blood counts? Is it safe to see my friend tomorrow? (I have asked if she is feeling well and not sick and she said yes) Would seeing my friend jeopardize my ability to go to camp? I got diarrhea today and am worried, that it too could somehow jeopardize my ability to go to camp...? Answered by Bonnie Satchell 1 year ago.

Im actually surprised you did not become neutropenic with your first dose, with those chemotherapy meds its pretty common for you to become very neutropenic. There really isnt anything else you can do to help your counts improve, continue your neuprogen and just wait. Cant really say how long it takes, its different every time. It terms of seeing your friend, like im sure your doctor has told you, currently you are very susceptible to infection so if you go see your friend i would be very carefull, had washing ect. Do you wear a mask when you go out? The diarrhea could be from the chemo, the gi tract is very sensitive to chemo and can slough off causing diarrhea. However it could also be first signs of infection so any hint of a fever or other symptoms you need to go to the ER right away. Answered by Carmelo Cruse 1 year ago.

first of all, im as so sorry that youre going through this. secondly you should call your physician and ask him/her these questions. if you are neutropenic (depending on how low your white counts are) you usually are put on house arrest, or contact precautions. its not fair that a child cant be a child and is forced into so much responsibility. but you may want to not ask your friend to come over. again, this depends on how low your white cell count is. each of us have billions of bacteria on us. its normal. it causes us no harm. if you have low white cell counts, meaning, a weak immune system, then bacteria that your friend has that doesn't harm your him/her may end up hurting you really bad. the physician who is treating you with chemo will be able to decide if your immune system is strong enough. as for raising your white cell counts....there isnt really anything you can do. neupogen is a miraculous drug without which many would get even sicker with chemo treatments. neupogen does a unique thing, it helps your body make an important type of white blood cell called neutrophils. the only other thing that can do this is your own body once it is healthy again. dont be afraid to tell your doctor about diarrhea. this is something that he/she may want to know. bottom line, call your doctor. i wish you the best!

I'm a 49yr. old male w/ non-hodgeskins b-cell, stage 4 lymphoma. Have been treated 6x w/ rytuxin ending 8/25/07. Cancer was substantially reduced. However it came back by 9/20/07. On 10/8/07 rec'vd 3 days continuous chemo of carboplatin, Ifex and rytuxin. In 3 days have lost weight, mostly muscle mass, had difficulty breathing, and severe drop in blood pressure causing two 40 second blackouts. The previous 6 rytuxin treatments had relatively no ill side effects. Also have cancer in the bone marrow, which has not been treated to date. I'm trying to find out how I may aggressively combat this cancer while also treating the adverse side effects indicated above. It is important for me to continue my work so that I can support my family and keep my excellent medical benefits. Deepest thanks. Answered by Britney Search 1 year ago.

Well, you shouldnt be working while going through all this, for one. You need to be able to rest to help your strength get back. I have been treated for aml for the last 3 years and the chemo drugs are simular to the ones used in your treatment. Are you taking any blood pressure meds? I am on Coreg bc of the damage the meds did to my heart, but while I was going through my last treatment they needed to adjust my dosage and even took me off for a while bc I was sleeping a lot and bp was staying low. Everytime i stood up I had a nice drop and a couple of black outs. Now, whats with this leukemia you say you have that isnt being treated? Leukemia needs to be treated fast, whether chronic or acute. Are you eating properly? Those nice dizzy spells can also be caused by a lack of carbs in your diet. Do you have a sugar monitor to test? The treatment I would suggest would be a stem cell transplant. This will treat the lymphoma and the leukemia. A cord blood transplant seems to be the best, and is the route I choose. You will loose weight no matter what, and even though you are weak, at this point you probably are loosing more fat than muscle. Try light excercise such as walking to prevent muscle loss and infection in the lungs. Marijuana can be used to help with nausa and appetite. if you go that way make sure you discuss with your doc and make sure you are taking an anti fungal med. Answered by Kathyrn Parrotte 1 year ago.

It's very hard to avoid the side effects of treatment that is strong enough to help you. Your doctors are probably going to suggest a bone marrow transplant, which may put you out of commission for a while. You will want to be sure to keep yourself hydrated with clean, pure water (no tap water), take a good quality vitamin supplement and consume only organic proteins and vegetables. Stay away from any sort of chemicals such as a pesticide, herbicide, fertilizer, etc., while you are healing, especially. Go online to the ACS website and see what the latest treatments are. I found Reglan helped with nausea, as did "italian ice" cups found in the grocery store. My oncologist recommended marijuana pills, but they didn't help me much. Rest is very important. If possible, you might try to work from home for a few days after each treatment. A healthy outlook is also important. I recommend reading, "Love, Medicine and Miracles" by Bernie Segal, M.D. It really helped me get through my illness. It's available on Amazon.com and other sites, by the way. Good luck with this fight, friend. Blessings on you. Answered by Araceli Maultasch 1 year ago.

My husband was treated with CHOP with rutuxin for his non-hodgkins lymphoma. The rutuxin was a very nasty drug for him, but everyone reacts differently. My understand that usually the first treatment is the worst for most people. But it is a miracle drug. It is one of the best new drugs. My husband had a mass that was 12 cm, which they told us a 6cm was considered a very large mass, and with his treatments, he is cancer free at this time. So I thank God for rutuxin. The nurses and doctors told me that this drug has been a wonder drug for them, and told us we were fortunate to be able to receive it. So keep positive. Answered by Andy Konik 1 year ago.
