Ugh I posted on the wrong thread ugh. Thanks mike
Great news Chris!
You are almost at 0.1 WBC...
For those not sure what a normal WBC count is, 5-15 (thousand) is normal for men for most labs.
What number are they shooting for before you get to go home?
Actually my ANC needs to be 1.5 for 3 tests for me to go home.Was wondering same. What is their goal?
Cool,Actually my ANC needs to be 1.5 for 3 tests for me to go home.
Right now with my WBC coming in today at .08 down from yesterday, they can not even calculate neutrophils yet. So counts were down a little today, received platelets. Nothing big. Once we can get that ANC number up, they will send me home. After 27 days so far I am ready to go home and cook something that tastes good, or order wings.Cool,
I was wondering if they were monitoring neutrophils (baby white blood cells) or leukocytes. I'm sure they are.
For the non-medical, there are several types of "white blood cells" (WBC). The ANC Chris mentioned is a calculation taking the total WBC number and multiplying it times the neutrophils. Normal range for someone healthy is 2.5-5 in most labs.
