I had a stage 4 melanoma in 2010. I have been on this drug since using it 14 days on and 14 days off. The side effects, for me, have been very mild. I have had no recurring cancer since.

Yet the doctor wanted to continue this mdeication on me.How is this possible isn't a recall being done on this product?

Second injection put me in the ER with the most intolerable bone pain that it took my breath away. I am back on nuprogen or neulasta when available.
