Melissa:

I saw your post on the MS forum and followed you here.

I'm one of those who likes to pose a lot of questions, so here I go again:

-When did you notice this starting with your daughter?
-Does she have any other symptoms that you notice? You might want to make a list and go over them with her doctor.
-What tests or exams has the doctor run? With the blood tests, was a CBC run?
-At what stage were you in your pregnancy when you had chemo? Is her doctor aware of this?

If this were my child, I would be as concerned as you are about her.

If her doctor did not run a CBC, I would ask him/her to do so, as well as performing a complete physical. I would then request copies of the doctor's transcripts and test results. If the doctor still seems unconcerned and has no recommendations for a specialist, you might want to consider contacting your oncologist and explain the situation and ask for a referral.

Please keep us posted.

Audrey
