The platelets were at 18 yesterday when we went to The Cancer Center. They gave her an infusion of platelets. We will go back Thursday and have them checked again.
We received the results of the Freelite test from last Thursday. They increased from 62 mg/L to 72 mg/L. We were hoping they would go down since this was 3 weeks after the start of this last chemo cycle. I think it is a time for a change of the treatment plan since the Melphalan is hard on her blood counts and the free light number countinues to go up.
Her hemoglobin recovered nicely after the red blood cell infusion. It went from 8.4 to 12.5 G/dL (12.0 – 16.0).
We are crossing our fingers on the constipation issue.
