Dear Dr Braverman,

I started daily neupogen injections of 1mcg/kg on day 7 of stimms (last day of stimms). My WBC at that time was within normal range. On day 8 of the injections my WBC was 20, on day 10 WBC was 22 and today (day 12) WBC is 34.8 - should I be concerned? I would be very grateful for any advice (I am experiencing no side effects, I am currently also taking 5mg of Prednisolone daily and today I am 2dp6dt on my 6th cycle, the first using neupogen)

Many thanks

Dr. Braverman

where are you being treated at this time. Have they managed neupogen cases before. Its hard for me to comment on one facet of the case without knowing the history. What was the indicaiton for the neupogen and what other immune parameters are being followed? Also are you experiencing any other symptoms? Please be sure your doctors are aware of these.
