Good news, the chocolate seems to of fueled a response to my immune system. (Well maybe it was the GCSF injections but I prefer the theory of the chocolate)
My neutrophils have finally bounced back. Not gonna lie I was getting pretty damn worried when it got to 5 days of injections and still seeing no response, but the relief was huge on Tuesday to see them pick up. AND they are still doing well.
Starting to notice the difference too and feeling a lot better already. Hopefully this virus has been kicked into touch now!
Theories on why my counts dropped……. I have been taking a drug called Valgancyclovir which can affect the bone marrows production. Also the virus itself will be hammering my bone marrow too…… but really we will never know!! The good news is just that the counts have come back up!! ha ha!
Rash update….. Having a mini flare up at the moment. Not only am I a bit hivey and spotty but also my skin is flaking off….. Even on my nipples!! ha ha And awkwardly I have a few hives in my pubic area so I keep finding myself subconsciously scratching my groin area!! Apologies in advance if I do this in your presence!! ha ha ha!! I won’t share any photos of this for the time being as the hives don’t even really show up on camera.
Hope everyone had a good easter and have been enjoying the sunshine of late!
