I didn't know what forum to put this in so I decided to land here since I"m usually on these boards.
So After chemo and rads I naturally figured my WBCS would bounce back, and they did to a point but they are still considered low.
I haven't been worried about the flu or coronavirus until I requested a copy of of most recent blood work in Feb ( that was a month ago so perhaps things are changed now ( for better or worse) , and my Total WBCS are 3.4 ( range 4.5-11) and more concerning is my lymphocytes are at 0.8 ( range 1.5-4). Neutrophils are 2.1 ( on the low end of normal). I plan on making drs appointment this week to discuss my risk of complications from the flu or viruses, but I was wondering typically how long chemo and rads after the immune system and the cells. I finished chemo 15 months ago and rads 10 months ago. I figured att his point they'd be okay. My drs know my results but haven't consulted with me on that , just made mention that for the last year they haven't been that great.
So I am a little concerned about getting seriously ill if the virus hits where I live .
Just wondering if anyone had a delay in getting counts back to normal.
