Why am I neutropenic while other blood counts are normal?
Hello l was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2015 and treatment included a right hemicolectomy and chemotherapy for 6 months (carbonating and elodea). Unfortunately on the 2nd June l have been diagnosed with an Unknown primary tumour. I have had CT guided biopsies of nodes at the para aortic arch and USB, CT and PET which all are negative. L have recently commenced Carboplatin and gemsitabin and have become so neutropenic on the first cycle. My remaining bloods are normal except C19.9 (785). I would appreciate your input especially to wondering why l remain neutropenic and the other counts are within normL limits. The neutrophils decreased from 1.2 to 0.6. Many thanks for your input
