Results of platelets are good 😎

Hi Ladies just back from my result of platelets as I mentioned I needed dental work and need my platelets up up a lest 100 they were 49 about 3 weeks ago

I was pleasantly surprised I expected about 90 but the results is 146, so will now go ahead with the dental work.

Why the results is so good I can't say the changes in my food intake are full cream milk I never drink milk but did get this tip, I have about 2 or 3 glasses a day was also drinking a lot of juices pomegranate was one and did eat paw paw not every day.

All so just tried to eat well.

So I can't say this help but I'm glad there up Take care everyone Lorraine xx

Congratulations on your result. What a happy new year for you. Good work. I believe in lots of leafy greens and Belgium chocolate ice cream.

I need dental work done also, but trying to wait till my treatment of Avastin is finished. Nurses at hospital last Friday when having treatment told me only 3 treatments left, 2 nd March I finish. Far out! When this time last year from what Oncologist told me, I didn't have much past Xmas just gone to live! Blows me away. The Oncologist now says that there is no cancer in my body that they are aware of!!! I have been very lucky that all treatments went well for me, well I tolerated them. From being told that and told I have stage 4 overian cancer with secondary in left lung to now.

Be positive and open yourself to let the drugs do what they need to do.

Love and good health. xx

Isn’t it. Can’t give up, so much research on cancer happening and a new drug that helps will surely come up.

Avastin is fairly new in Australia for overian cancer.

I live in WA and a friend of mine finished 12 months on Avastin 6 months ago and is doing very well. We seem to be keeping up with the rest of the world quite well... all very heartening!!

That sounds promising and would be interested in reading it also glad you have recovered from the viral infection. I had an occasion to visit Westmead Hospital a few years ago and was very impressed with the whole Hospital Medical complex.. you should be in safe hands and look forward to hearing all about it.

Pomegranate is supposed to be good for platelets too - good choice 😊

Glad your levels were OK and your dental work can go ahead - good luck with it!
