I was supposed to have cycle 2 of second line Caelyx/Carboplatin today. But blood test revealed low blood counts - I am anaemic and neutropenic so I have to be careful around groups of people. My oncologist thinks bloods will right themselves and I should be ok for next Monday. She did talk about adjusting the Caelyx dose. I am very disappointed but not really surprised as I haven't felt right (not that I really remember what it is to feel 'right' anymore!) lately.
I had thought that a 4 week gap would give plenty of time for recovery between treatments especially at the start. Which concerns me that maybe I will not be able to tolerate this treatment and wonder what would be next for me. I would be interested to hear about the experiences of others who have been/are on this chemo combo. I am Stage 4 high grade serious.
Best wishes to everyone for whatever stage they are at
