I only had time to briefly look at old postings to see what is "usual" after ATG, realizing, of course, everyone is different. My husband finished his last dose of ATG on Monday. At that point his platelets were at 1000, white at 500 and red at 6.9. The platelets and red cells have gone up to 4000 and 7.9 as of yesterday,white at 400..Platelets and reds went up today too but dont have numbers. White cells have not budged..The posting I found said typically the white cells recover first. Granted, its only been two days. Dr. says he is doing remarkably well and is going to start to reduce the steroids but wants him in the hospital until his white cells are at 10 (1000 I am assuming). Any words out there, other than chill and give it some time?? Thanks.
