This is day 16 of round 1 for my son. He had his Bleo shot. I drove him to his appointment, but he asked me not to come up. I was lucky he allowed me to drive him and that he agreed to spend the night at our house so I didn't want to push it. The downside of that is I didn't get to ask questions (which is probably why he didn't want me to come up in the first place!) So once again, I'm asking you. He had two blood tests last week (which I found unusual, but whatever) and he was told today that his wbc was low and he would have to give himself shots next week. So I'm wondering, first of all, why he has to wait until next week (which is when he starts Round 2) Second of all, not that it matters, but why is he giving himself the shot if he's going to be there anyway for his 5-day treatment? Third of all, should I assume he's going to give himself a Neulesta shot or are there other shots to elevate wbc? If so, does he just get the shot once or is it a series? Thanks for any light you can shed on this for me.
