    I think a lot depends on which chemo drugs you are taking. One thing I DID learn from some people on the ACOR site was if you do get a Neulasta shot, take some Claritin D (or the generic)...it helps with the bone pain that results from Neulasta. My biggest thing was fatigue. I have neuropothy in my toes and my big toenails fell off. That's attractive! Be vigilant about preventing constipation...Miralax is good(store brands work too).

      I don't think I had a Neulasta shot, but I'll check. I woke up at 4 AM in great pain (even my hair hurt), but took a pain pill and was able to go back to sleep. When I woke up again I was ok. Boy does ok feel good! I'll make it through all of this. The rest of you did and you are my heroes.
