I'm sorry to hear  about your husband's diagnosis. You probably know that small cell LC is much less common than non-small cell. So there are  fewer member on these foums with small cell, but there are some, and I hope you'll hear from them.  Has your husband's medical oncologist discussed the possibility of Neupogen or Neulasta to help prevenet low WBC? My lung cancer was stage 1a and I didn't need chemo, but I had a previous non-lung cancer for which I did have chemo and I had a WBC crash. Neupogen after each subsequent infusion kept my WBCs in a reasonable range so I could get the chemo.

Best wishes. Let us kow how we can support you.

Hello with the low white count it usually happens a week before or the week of your next cycle which I learned from oncologist and that would happen to my husband. They suggest to take two magnesium vitamins a day until u come back and if still low they will iv him with magnesium. Spinach; almonds; beans; ginger etc are also rich in mag plus others.good luck! He can beat this
