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

Something wrong with that report. monocytes and
eosinophils are white cells so they must be
less than the WBC total

OK--he had written numbers when he meant percentages.
Sorry. Here are his numbers again:

WBC 6.3 K
Neutrophils 38.2% Low
Lymphocytes 12.9% Low
Monocytes 29.8% High
Eosinophils 18.5% High
Basophils 0.6%
NRBC 0

Number of Nutrophils 2.4 K
Lymphocytes 0.8 k
Monocytes 1.9 k
Eosinophils 1.2 k
No basophils
No NRBCs

RBC 3.94 million L
Hemoglobin 14.2
Hematocrit 41.9
MCV 106.2 H
MCH 36.1 H
MCHC 34.0
RDW 15.5 H
Platelets 215
MPV 8.2 N
Reticulocytes 0.52%

Although the monocytes and eosinophils are slightly
high, they are probably insignificant in the context.
