I am 62. Dr. found CLL about a year ago. White blood count had been up. I've been taking Androgel for a few years now. 4 months ago my dr. raised my androgel to 3 pumps a day because my testosterone was low. I had been taking 2 pumps a day. I would shower after several hours to let the gel set in. Dr. told me that I would have to leave it on for at least 20 hours each day before showering. Thats when he raised to 3 pumps a day. Well, 4 months later at my next visit and after lab work, my testosterone was way up and so was my white blood cell count. I read the article on the eHealthMe.com site verifying that the 3 pumps could have caused everything to elevate. Now I am waiting for my cancer Dr. to call. Its been a week now and havent heard anything. I had asked my Dr. when I was there if the Androgel would have any effect on the white blood cells. He said NO.
My mom has had radiation therapy for a plasmacytoma in her ribs and has laryngitis. She was also on prednisone just before that, and the MD blames the the pred for the laryngitis. The issue is my dad, who is 3/4 deaf and is almost blind and wants to depend on my mom for care. He cant' hear her like he has for 65 years. Did the radiation or the pred cause the laryngitis?
