Posted on Wed, 11 Oct 2017
Question: I just finished my first round of 4 treatments with Folfirinox chemo therapy for pancreatic cancer. The PET/ MRI shows an impression of complete metabolic response. My abnormal lab results included lows of RBC 2.80, HGB 9.0 and HCT of 26. My next treatment starts tomorrow of 4 treatments of Gemzar. Please respond. Also a little low on calcium and protein.
