Blood count fluctuations
My daughter is 20 month old and is on day +63 post BMT with a 9/10 match. So far all good. Her bloods had minor fluctuations and were approaching normal ranges, just one drop due to a cold virus after which counts recovered. She was having gcsf every 5 days to keep neutrophils above 1. She had gcsf on Sunday but on Tuesday all her blood counts dropped (hb, platelets, wbc). They asked us not to worry as it may just be a fluctuation and to observe the trend. Are these drops normal? I cannot but worry that there's something wrong with her graft. Should we expect these fluctuations? Her chimerism shows 100% donor cells. She also had a bone marrow aspirate recently which was clear.
