Help with Low WBC Count and Seizures
Hello Everyone, my father, 64yrs is a stage-3 pancreatic cancer patient with a history of pancreatitis and diabetes. He has had two rounds of Chemo with Folfirinox since his diagnosis in Aug-23. During his third cycle, he suffered a mild seizure due to which his chemo was discontinued. Further investigation by the medical professional did not yield any reasons for the said seizures. Post this, his WBC count were low due to which his chemotherapy has been pushed indefinitely. We tried to improve his blood count through diet but it hasn't yielded any result. Also, our oncologist and family doctor has failed to suggest any other alternative ways to boost his WBC count. His CA 19-9 score has however come down significantly from 882 to 100 recently. He recently got hospitalized now due to low blood count and is also unable to digest his food resulting in nausea. We are unable to understand his symptoms. Does anyone else have experienced this or have any advice on the best way to handle this? He is now getting really dejected with this entire experience and we are failing to communicate with him as we ourselves are failing to make any sense of his condition.
