Transplant B, Day +3: Temporary white spike...

Posted Nov 04 2009 10:07pm
Just like last time. The urging of the Neupogen shot made what's left of my poor dying bone marrow give up its white cells, and my WBC is now in the 5.X range. That should mean that tomorrow or at the latest Monday will be the huge crash, which is the necessary rite of passage to new cancer-free bone marrow, so we're on the right track.

Everything else was good today -- didn't need platelets and my electrolytes (Potassium, Magnesium, etc.) were all in balance. We were in and out of the 7th floor in half an hour (they called later with lab results since the lab was behind and they didn't want me to have to wait).

I took a two hour nap in the late afternoon and that seems to have helped with energy. I've lost 10 pounds of water-weight...still have another 10 to go. Eating like a horse so I'm not sure how much I'll be able to get rid of simply by processing water, but hopefully I'll get back to where I was before the Dex took hold.

Have a good weekend, everyone!
