Do cuts in chemo dose, prolonged treatment cycles lower cure rates?
Because of my low platelet count, my onc has reduced my chemo dosage and scheduled my treatments about 5-6 weeks apart. Treatments normally are 3 weeks apart. My platelet count today (Oct 21) was 77,000. Normal count is 150,000-300,000. So this means I’ll have to wait another 2 weeks for next chemo treatment, assuming my platelet account is okay. I’m scheduled for 2 more chemo treatments after that, which means I’ll be having chemo until January 2021. My question for everyone is: will these prolonged treatment cycles, plus slightly reduced chemo dosage, lower my cure (remission} rate for my endometrial cancer?
