I was prescribed 7 injections of Neupogen right after my 1st Chemo cycle was completed. A nurse mentioned that I might experience some bone pain. After the 4 injection, I started to feel pain in my bones throughout my body. This was nothing like arthritis! By my last injection I was in tears. A nurse suggested that I use some ibuprofen but could not offer any other kind of pain relief.
Can any one tell me if they have experienced this kind of pain and what drug was used to help lower the pain level?
I will be going for my 2ND cycle of chemo soon. I will be talking to my oncologist before this and asking for help on this pain issue. Sure would be nice to have some plan of pain relief beforehand. I am very interested in your experiences and pain relief meds.
