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

severe pain in joints, legs, muscles, arms, can barely stand on my legs for a long period of time. Right leg & foot also numb from this shot (neulasta). Terrible side effects.Aspirin didn't touch the pain & either did oxycodone....Still suffering from this terrible drug

Comment:
I must say that I have the opportunity to compare my 1 shot every 2 wks to when I was a stem cell donor for my brother and was given heavy doses of the neulasta. No I do not like the aches in my bones. This weekend I will do very little. But next week I will be me again. The treatment is definetly not worse than the disease.
