Hello everyone wishing you all a relaxed Sunday.
Can I ask if anyone else has experienced an increase in their liver alt's during chemo?
My bloods on Thursday showed an alt measure of 170. The oncologist says normal is 35. A subsequent conversation with my piccline nurse suggested this is because my liver is working overtime in response to the chemo.
Oncologist offered to delay chemo for a week on the expectation that the number would fall to around 100 and delaying chemo for 2 weeks ought to return the level to normal.
I asked her what the risks of continuing without delay were. The reply was none; One can only presume this is because it is considered a side effect of chemo that is expected to return to normal after chemo treatment ends. So I went ahead with my 3rd FEC. Felt light headed on day 2 in the arvo but can't seem to find anything online to help me further. Would appreciate any comments, thank you all.
