  • It seems like my WBC surprisingly recovered. I had a new blood test on saturday and from 1.2 they increased to 11 which is into normal value. did this happen because of the Neulasta shot?
    My platelets are below normal value 110. However my Urologist didnt seem concerned about it. Also since...

My oncologist said that on the long BEP week he will issue a medical excuse or disability order so I could get my treatment and then stay home and not go to work. However he didnt say anything...

All chemo order and paperwork was written and signed by the oncologist and then his nurse calls and asks me to pick them up. The oncologist was outside the city all week attending some meetings, and it seems...

  • Im no expert either, but there are very educated men in the forum. I thought that previous CT-Scan and MRI would be enough for the Oncologist to get me into treatment. The thing that makes me concerned is not bringing to my oncologist desk neither the PETCT nor the Biopsy next October 4. What if the...
