This is Dr. David

no. each CBC only takes out a small amount of blood

your bone marrow can replace the blood that is lost

why did you have 5 CBCs done in 5 days?

do you have a blood disorder?

Monitoring my anemia and electrolyte imbalance
Oncologist: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

I see.

no, you didn't loose too much blood

your bone marrow will make more

I take it you are taking iron for your anemia?

If there was any issue with loss of blood, they would have seen it on the most recent CBC?
Oncologist: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

they would have seen it on your most recent CBC.

you don't have to worry about 5 blood draws

Okay thank you. I was just calculating it and it's been 12 over the past month but if it would be seen on CBC then there is no need to be worried (correct??) because they said all looked well except a low white blood cell count for some reason, which I've had for quite some time.
Oncologist: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

there is no need to worry.

your CBC checks all the blood cells.
