Low white blood cell count

4 years 10 months ago #45778 by rbmc
I think normal WBC is in the range of 4-10. What are you considering 'borderline low'? Mine is also below 4, but have been doing normal daily activities with no problem. The doctor should have explained at risk factors for your specific numbers. Did they start the Gemzar? One side effect said that it can lower blood counts.

My husband went for his second Chemo treatment . He had CISPLATIN last week and when he went for the GEMZAR they do a blood count. It was determined his white blood cell count was borderline low. I am not sure what exactly this means but want to know what they do about this. Should he stay home from work to avoid infection or is it safe for him to go? The nurse said he should stay home and work from home but he thinks he knows better. Please help with this dilemma as I want him to do what is best for him.
