I finished salvage radiotherapy on 26th April and had a blood test on Tuesday 1st August. PSA is <0.1 which is great. I also realise it is very early days after radiotherapy.
But for the second time in three months my Neutrophil count is below the minimum value.
My GP has asked me to get a repeat blood test to check Neutrophils again but expressed a concern about the low count and it being as important a marker as my PSA.
I know many have had low Neutrophil counts due to treatment and wondered if there is anything I can do to help it increase?
Are there implications other than risk of infection from having a low neutrophil count?
I am still on HT until at least April 2019 and take Salazopyrin(Sulphasalasine) for psoriatic arthritis.
Many thanks in advance for the collective wisdom of this site. Best wishes, Ian.
