    Hi Jacki, I just saw your post-and wanted to see how you were doing? I am starting R-CHOP on Sept 6th. I hope you are feeling well!-Was the Neulasta Patch mentioned as an option??

      Hi Stacy, I'm doing ok, thanks. No patches were never mentioned so I don't know if that would make a difference to the side effects or not, I did find the side effects from the second shot was no where near as bad as the 1st so I was pretty happy with that. I've been really well, I still work full time but I did find my third cycle did knock me around a lot more and I'm really tired a lot of the time but I can deal with that,I just have to rest more, it could be worse. I have found that taking any medication to prevent side effects works way better than waiting till you get them, speak to your chemo nurses, they're pretty awesome and will do what they can to make things easier for you. I wish you well, just take each day as it comes, be strong ( when you can) and stay positive, you really can do this

      Ok maybe the patches aren't yet available. I'm impressed and glad to hear you are working!! Will talk to nurses about premedicating properly. Thanks for the tips

      Medical marijuana works well on nausea too.

      I received emend this cycle and I had no nausea. My first cycle I had tons of nausea and vomiting even with compazine and zofran. The emend was great!
