My mom had that shot after each cycle of chemo, and I believe that at the highest level, her WBC count was around 14. I encourage you to talk to your oncologist because it's a valid concern. Take care.

Thank YOU....MY mom called a nurse that goes to our church, and dad said that if anyone knows she should because she is a nurse and worked with an oncologist for years....she didn't even know off hand what normal range was for WBC. She just said that the doctor had to approve the results of the blood test if it was something that looked abnormal then it would of been brought to the attention of the doctor. Well if she is a nurse who worked for an oncologist and doesn't even know the normal range for the WBC count or what might be just a little too high for safety...then what makes her think that this nurse would know anymore then she does. Dad said the nurse looked at the test and said your blood work looks good. Thank you for the information on your Mom.
