Whar does your Doctor or Nurse say?

I think the SOC is every 2 weeks at first and less later if all is well.  The main reason for CBCs is that the blood can tank so fast - both white counts and red counts - and you need to be aware of what is happening.  I think the once a week CBCs are a good idea.  

Have you discussed with your doctor what happens if the WBC or RBC go down too low?
