I am feeling great and responding well, 1 week into my 3rd of 6 rounds of chemo for breast cancer. Looking over my labs, WBCs are slightly high at 10.7, so I assume the Neulasta is working well. My concern is that my neutrophils are high at 10.2 (95%) and my lymphs are low at 0.3 (3%). AST and ALT are high at 51 and 61 respectively. CA markers have increased, which I hear is expected. I'm most concerned about the low lymphs, as I want my NKs high to get ready for sugery, and minimalize the risk for metastasis.
