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?
