    I think it has worked well, but am scared of it. I have been given the shot DURING chemotherapy and everything I have read says that it should not be given till 24 hours AFTER chemo.

    I have had a neulasta injection 24 hours after chemo treatment several times now. I didn't have any pain until the last one and it was miserable! It was like the worst migraine over my entire body, head, neck, jaw, back and hips ached constantly with no relief for 2 1/2 days.I took lortab and percocet and zyrtec. I was told to take claritin or zyrtec for body aches. The last sleepless night I ... Show Full Comment

    4 days after my shot I had EXCRUTIATING lower back. I associated it with my Herpes. Dr didn't think so. Second shot I had similar pain but it moved up my back and to my sternum. Ibuprofin helped but Drs say no vitamins which I would normally use to combat outbreaks. Has anyone else experienced this?

    I have received Neulasta 24 hrs after each chemo treatment. The 1st time, the nurse told me there might be "some bone pain" in the next 24 hrs. 5 days later, I had 36 hrs of horrific pain in my lower spine, hips & sternum. Nothing helped. My husband wanted to take me to the ER, but I wouldn't go. After talking with the office nurse at my oncologist's & reading online ... Show Full Comment
