Why can’t my white blood cells count?

Yesterday was infusion 2 of cycle 2 of my chemotherapy treatment for Hodgkins Lymphoma which takes me to more or less the half way point of the original planned treatment of four cycles of two weekly treatments. Dr Tache’s plan is to probably send me for anther PET scan after my third cycle and then make a decision as to how many more cycles I should have because I developed heavy night sweats immediately before my first chemo treatment.

It seems that without the aid of additional drugs my white blood cell count is somewhere between low and very low so it’s another injection today which can be expected to make my bones ache. Last time this wasn’t too bad except for the occasional day so I’m hopeful things will be the same this time around.
