This is the drug from hell! I had 4 chemo infusions (AC)followed by Neulasta with no bone pain whasoever. My 5th was Taxol and I got the worst bone pain of my life! I couldn't sit, stand, lie down or even walk without being in excruciating pain. Percocet worked for only two days. I suffered another 2 days and then went to the hospital for a much needed shot of morhpine. I was then presc ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had six chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer with one of these shots after each one. I had intense bone pian in my legs after each time, the pain lasting longer each time. My doctor put me on oxycodone, ibuprofen, and claritin. It worked great to control the main. My last shot was on June 1st, 2012 and I am getting the exact same pain not quite as intense randomly 1-3 times a week. Now I am ... Show Full Comment
