Had to take a break from chemo because blood was in such bad shape. Along with everything being low my white cells were quite bad. The neutrophils were down to .5, so my immune system was shot. Along with making sure I upgraded my nutrition, as Becky mentioned, I increased my protein intake, very gentle exercise (even 2 minutes).
Nutrition in particular helped me to raise the count to 4.2 within a week! Besides trying to eat well, increasing vitamin c, taking my multivitamin and a well balanced b complex, I added pantethenic acid (b5), temporarily increased b6, folic acid.
I told my nurse practitioner what I was going to take since I had just finished my 6th round of chemo. My med team was delighted with the results. Everything is now mid range normal, except red blood count anemia. But it is improving with the increased proteins in my diet.
