| Low White & Red Blood Cells after Masectomy for Breast Cancer |
Answered by: Susan Eagles
Question from: Darlene
Posted on: May 14, 2007
I am 41, female with breast cancer that is estrogen and progesterone negative and HER2/neu positive. Had bilateral mastectomy (w/ 44 nodes + on one side and 8 or 38 on the other side +) and only did one and 3/4 dose of chemo and now only on weekly infusions of herceptin. My wbc’s, rbc’s and hematocrit are low. They say my cancer is stable. However I want something to raise these to help fight cancer and infections. This is the first time these both are low. I do coffee enemas, daily juicing, supplements and more alternative. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated as I have a 6 year old that I am fighting hard to stay around for.
I recommend that you read Susun Weed’s book "Breast Cancer? Breast Health!" (Ash Tree Publishing). She lists alternatives for all stages and health problems in breast cancer, with the reasoning behind her recommendations, and the current usage and research behind each of each alternative.
