Something wrong with that report. monocytes and

eosinophils are white cells so they must be

less than the WBC total

WBC 6.3k (normal) down from 120k+ before tx

Monocytes 29.8k (normal range is 4.1-12.2)

Eosinophil. 18.5k (normal 0.8-6.0k) still high, last time it was 20k

RBC 3.94 million (big improvement over 2.1 when started tx)

Although the monocytes and eosinophils are slightly

high, they are probably insignificant in the context.

Hi Everybody:

The R-CHOP was a mistake on the slip. My Dad started his

fifth round of FCR this week. His eosinophils are still way

too high, and now his monocytes are very elevated too. His

oncologist has no idea why--and his only solution is a bone

marrow biopsy when the chemo finishes.

WBC 6.3k (normal) down from 120k+ before tx

Monocytes 29.8k (normal range is 4.1-12.2)

Eosinophil. 18.5k (normal 0.8-6.0k) still high, last time it was 20k

RBC 3.94 million (big improvement over 2.1 when started tx)

Any ideas?? Anybody else face an issue with monocytes and

eosinophils?? Are these side effects of the FCR? Could

there be another cancer lurking?

Thanks,

Karla
