I was well informed by my Oncologist and the infusion staff of the potential side effects and treatments. My side effects have been relatively mild ....bad backache that begins approx 6 days after the shot and lasts for 2-3 days. After the 1st shot, I did experience mild, flu-like symptoms for ...

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
