I was diagnosed to have Lupus Nephritis and I am undergoing chemotherapy (cytoxan). I had my first session last August and I needed to complete the six sessions. Last September was supposed to be my 2nd session but my white blood count is way below normal that my doctor suggested that I needed to be injected with granucytes to increase my wbc. My blood pressure dropped to 70/50 and was brought to Intensive Care Unit, I lost consciousness and almost died. But I guess God has other plans for me that He gave me another chance of life. I spent 5 days at the ICU and I'm currently recovering.
My question, is there a way to increase my white blood cells without those granucytes shots? I have to wear a mask everytime and I sometimes freak out that I might catch an infection because of the low wbc. Please enlighten me, thanks.
