My dad has stage four nsclc, he has gone through 37 radiation treatments and six chemo tratments. After the fourth chemo his scans showed significant shrinkage of tumor and they were impressed with how well he was handling all treatment. After the fifth treatment my dd became very anemic and needed a blood transfusion. He's been incredibly tired and short of breath. He had his itch treatment ten days ago and is now in hospital for slight pneumonia and his red blood cell count was well below where it should be nd he is receiving to blood transfusions along with antibiotics for pneumonia. My question is did anyone else have problems with anemia during their course of treatment? And did you need a blood transfusion? If so how many and did they help especially with shortness of breath?
