My friend and I are both breast CA survivors, and she has been diagnosed with Stage IV ovarian CA. She has had her surgery, and has mets to the lung, so she is now beginning chemo thru a port and received a shot the day after her first six hour chemo of what I assume is Neupogen. She is sicker from the shot (?) than she was from the chemo. Is there anything I can recommend to her as she has every adverse reaction there is indicated? Will she have this shot each time she has chemo? She has a problem with a very controlling husband, and he is holding information from her "for her own good" and instead all of this is scaring her to death. She does not have a support system other than her husband and one daughter and friends who live hundreds of miles away.
