I started my first course of FC(without R for the first course) six weeks ago. WBC down from 139.3 to 14.4 which seems a good start. However, my platelet count is now 68 and my consultant wants this to recover before my next FCR and has put me on Folic acid tablets. Does anyone know how long this might take ? I'm keen to get on with the treatment, feel well, played tennis yesterday and don't feel like a 75 year old !
