My wife has started Chemo and after her first cycle was given a white cell booster shot Pegfilgrastim (Neulasta). Prior to this shot my wife's white blood cells were in the proper range (4.5 to 10.5).
The shot jumped her white blood cells to 33.2 and threw many of her other CBC numbers out of range.
Should this shot be provided if the white cells are not low but within range? I am trying to ask my doctor but he has not had the time to speak to me.
