Hi, my aunt has been diagnosed with gallbladder cancer (stage 4B) and after first chemo her platlets count is 25000. The doctors have refused to go with chemo until the platlets are normal. They have given a tablet to her to bring the count to normal. Is there anything else that can be done ? Like blood transfusion to increase the count. Please let me know. Thanks !!
