Urgent question by PCV rise
- hello everyone
Rigsby had his first shot of darbepoeitin last friday night at 8pm. at that time PCV was 16%. I took him for blood test today and it is now 20%. This seems like a massive jump to me - I have read PCV needs to increase slowly, by only 2-3% per week. His is rising 10x that. he was given 6.25mcg to start - i queried this as had been reading lots around risk of over zealous dosing of this drug, but was assured it was right for Rigsby. I am waiting for the specialist to call me to discuss his results. ADVICE please!!!!
