One of the possible side effects of my chemotherapy drugs is risk of infection, I had a blood test today in preparation for my second round of chemo on Wednesday which found a very low white blood cell count, and it’s not hard to connect the two in my mind.
The nurse called me on the phone and seemed concerned about that, to the point of moving the next chemo session back a week, and ordering another lab test before the first treatment. We’ll see how it goes. I don’t currently have any cold or flu-like symptoms; but I might need to take extra precautions against being around other folks who are sick just in case.
I’m hoping that it’s just a mistake at the lab. (If I were a perfect person myself, I wouldn’t be able to imagine that; but…uh…)
