Long lastin' neulasta

Posted by raetsel at Tuesday, June 10, 2008

I woke up feeling pretty good this morning so decided to log on to work and see how I went. As it was I managed the whole day and don't feel too tired at all.

Today I gave myself an injection of Neulasta which is another type of G-CSF to help my white cells recover, similar to injections I had last time to help them that caused all the bone pain.

I've been prescribed this new injection before my counts have hit bottom because it is slow a release form of the G-CSF so should kick in as my counts lower and hopefully won't cause the same bone pain issues. Even so I have also got some codeine based pain killers prescribed and at the ready. We'll see how things go over the next few days.
