This is Dr. David
I am a cancer doctor
what is most important while on chemotherapy is the total WBC count and neutrophil count.
I hope the WBC count is normal.
chemo and taxol can also cause anemia and low hemoglogloin and low hematocrit
if the hemoglobin is below 10, you may need a blood transfusion.
percentages of neutrophils and lymphocytes and eosinophils are usually not a problem if they are out of range.
high MCV above 100 can be a sign of low B12 and low folate levels which can be given to you with supplements.
B12 supplements can also help with some energy during chemotherapy.
