Discharged

Filed under: — brendan @ 19:30 GMT

I’m home, discharged from the hospital.  My neutrophils were 0.5 yesterday; they gave me a growth hormone shot.  The sample taken this morning had them at a whopping 5.1.  The doctors wanted them to go up by 0.1 or a bit more to go ahead with letting me come home.  I don’t know if they were already expecting that sort of a result.

On Friday I go into the Day Ward and have my blood drawn for testing, and they’ll give me a bag of platelets or a blood transfusion if I need either/both.   The results of that test will help guide what else happens next week.  Tentatively, on Tuesday I’ll go back to the Day Ward for the bone marrow test (aspirate and biopsy).  It may happen later in the week based on how my counts look, but I’m not sure what the criteria will be.

I’m due further chemo treatments regardless; exactly what the next one will be will get figured out next week.

Right now, I’m just trying to grasp the idea that I’m home.

Many people can`t afford medical insurance and thus forced to pay for the expensive prescription medications or look after cheap generic drugs online. Generics are potent and safe as other branded counterparts. Only reputable pharmacy produces them such as Cipla. With this in mind one may buy levaquin uk in generic online pharmacy with free shipping worldwide
