Yes. some antibiotics do cause decreased counts but will recover eventually. I hope i had earlier suggested you to do exercise and have well balanced hygenic food to improve your immunity. Are you following it ??
Patient replied :
Thank you. Yes, I have been doing lots of exercise, and eating right.
Do you know of patients whose counts stay around .8 for a long time (maybe years) after chemo--but don't go below the .5 cutoff for severe neutropenia??? I am really worried that my count will fall farther to .5 since it was 1.8 in April, 1.0 in May and .8 in July. (I finished chemo 1 year ago). I feel like it is going to just keep falling. How likely is this??
AND I had heard it was rare for an antibiotic to cause neutropenia--is this true?
Sometimes it stays on the lower side for one or two patients... But it may recover eventually, but slowly. Continue your exercise and a good balanced diet.
