Hi, I have an oligometastatic and I have been taking these medication for 6 months. My blood count white cells were sooo low that my doc decrease the dosis. And I felt much better. Although count doesn’t increase much. I have shots regularly to increase white cells. My energy levels are usually good. Sometimes I get sick easy. Other than that I retain water. Do you have some advice?

    Hi razaola sorry you are here. Yes low white counts are experienced by some of us. I am on 75mg and still struggling with low white count. I chose not to try the shots for now. They don't work for everyone. I keep get sinus infections. I am going to try alternative dosing first. I am off for two months right now to to have knee replacement surgery. Need to have all my blood counts normal to have the surgery. Part of the time off is timing. I was to have surgery last year but they found mets. Walking is painfull. I want quality of life and even grocery shopping is hard.

    Check out the Ibrance feed. There are a bunch of people there who are very helpful. At the top of the page tap on the magnifying glass and type ibrance in the search box. It should come up..
