TAC and low blood counts

On day 7 of my second round of TAC, I become very weak and discovered I had very low blood counts.  The counts are WBC 0.4 (normal is 4.1 - 10.9), RBC 2.86  (normail 4.2 - 6.3) with HCT 27% (normal 37% - 51%) and platelets 45,000 (normail is 140,000 - 440, 000)


1.  How long does it take to recover from low blood cell counts like these?

2.  My oncologist is saying she'll have to rethink my chemo treatment.  Does AC and then Taxol work better with someone like me who might respond this way?

3.  Could this be linked to inteference of other drugs or my diet with my chemo??

I'm wishing it was something simple to solve, but I guess it's not.

I'll see my oncologist on Monday and ask her -- but I'm curious to hear from others in this situation.
