Has Anyone Had To Stop Carboplatein Because Of Low Blood Counts?

Has Anyone Had To Stop Carboplatein Because Of Low Blood Counts?

I am part of a Clinical Trial that did 4 rounds of AC followed by 12 weeks of Taxol with 4 Carboplatein's every 3 rd week. My last Carboplatein was October 24th. my WBC and ANC counts have declined steadily for 3 weeks. Today my ONC said they were going to stop the Carboplatein and just do 9 more weeks of Taxol. He said my Neutrophil ANC was taking way too long to come up and he felt the chemo could do permanent damage to my bone marrow. Has anyone had this happen?

Has Anyone Taken Taxol And Carboplatin?

Has Anyone Taken Taxol And Carboplatin?

Doctor will be switching treatment from Keytruda and AC every 21 days, to Keytruda and taxol and carboplatin weekly. The first 2 treatments were very harsh on me. I'm really praying this will be much easier. However , I am apprehensive and disappointed that I have to go every week supposedly for 6 weeks. 😒☹️

A MyBCTeam Member
