Because of a persistent infection that keeps coming back when my WBC's are down (in the site of the lumpectomy), my doctors are recommending that I take Leukine shots (similar to Neupogen) for 7 days after chemo to boost my immune system. Have any of you done this? Did you experience any side effects? Do you know how much it boosted your neutrophils or WBC's? I'd appreciate hearing about your experience?
