I love my cancer center but I have to say that it was a bit disorganized this past week. But a good example for why we need to be informed and ask questions. I was supposed to have 2 sets of labs performed but only 1 was performed. They ordered my comprehensive but not the CBC w differential lab. So, the comprehensive said I was good to take my xgeva. But, of course I needed the status of WBC and neutrophils. One nurse said “you can use the 4/24 numbers”. I said “I don’t think so. They need to monitor my response to Ibrance”. She paged dr and sure enough, someone forgot to order.
Now I got results and I’m wondering if they forgot to call me. They said “go ahead and start. We will call you if you should stop”. WBC was 2.2 and absolute neutrophils .9, neutrophil %41.9
Second cycle so far has been uneventful. Liver numbers stable (although slightly elevated but I have an autoimmune disease of liver I hope reverses)
