My wonderful wife and soul-mate had IDS some weeks ago and had one session of carboplatin 4 weeks later. It has been hell for her. She has been quite unwell, her white blood cell count is frighteningly low. So low that they would not give her the last lot of chemo three weeks after the first. She is so down, I really don't know what to do. She has been so upbeat and resilient all the way until now.
