Low white blood cell levels
Hope that you are all keeping well and enjoying the much needed nicer weather.
I just wanted to pop on here to see if anyone had any advice on similar situations.
My dad has stage 4 colon cancer with spread to his liver. His tumour on his bowel has been removed and he now has a permanent stoma bag. He is on folfox chemotherapy and is due to start his fourth round on Monday. He went for his blood tests and they’ve said all results are perfect apart from his white blood cell levels. I think they said they should be 1.4 and his are 1.1 which is too low to start the next treatment on Monday.
Any help on how to help raise these levels (if that’s even possible) would be really helpful or just any helpful hints for chemo.
Overall he is doing so well and being only 52 he is remaining hugely positive that this is something that we are going to be able to fix and deal with. He’s my hero!
Thank you all,
