Remembering Dave Posted March 22, 2005 Share Posted March 22, 2005 I'm really disappointed and worried. Dave went for in for chemo today and his plateletts were only 78,000 so they didn't give him treatment. he didn't have chemo last week because they were 70,000. This was supposed to be the fifth week of chemo and so far he's only had two treatments. I have a call in to the oncologist because we have to do SOMETHING. Just sitting around and waiting is not going to kill this beast. I did some research and you have to be down to 20,000 to get a bone marrow transplant, from what I read, but I wonder what else we can do? I have a call into the oncologist. his nurse just called - I told her, I want to talk to the doc - I cannot just sit around and watch my husband die while we wait for his plateletts to come up. so she's going to have him call me.
