  • When Does WBCs and Neutrophills Generally Normalize Post-Chemo?

    My last bleo shot on BEP x 3 is this Monday. However, physically I've been feeling really good and am mentally ready to return to a "normal" life (gym, work, etc.). I know, however, the immune system may not necessarily reflect how I'm feeling physically. My neutrophills after round 1 were 1.0 and after round 2 were 0.5. I imagine they're even lower now after just finishing round 3. My WBC right now is 2.7 (3.9-10.6 standard range). When do these markers generally start to normalize so I know how to manage risk?

    Afraid I can't recall how long it took, but I assume your doc is testing regularly, so I'd be careful until you get a normal test result. My white count has stayed at the low end of normal range ever since chemo, my doc says that's not uncommon.
