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.

let me know if you have questions.
