I just had a blood draw today and was shocked at the results.  My WBC was 1.4 so now back to Granix shots.  My potassium was at 2.7 which is considered critical, so I am now on oral potassium.  On Thursday I have a blood transfusion because my hemoglobin is 7.3.  What the heck?  Things were not bad last week.  The blood transfusion scares me to death although my onco nurse said it is "routine".  Well not for me!  Has anyone else had all these issues crop up?  I want to stay on schedule with chemo so hope all this works!

Yes, my labs were pretty jacked up yesterday. Onc says skip a week and then may do Carbo weekly instead of every third. Hope the transfusion gets you on track. I know it's not ideal.
