Hey all....I have had 2 of 6 treatments. Each time they pump me full of steroids during the infusion and the side effects are a red face and INSOMNIA. I have never taken the oral steroids that are prescribed for the 3 days post chemo. Does anyone know what the purpose of these steriods are? If it would lessen the bone pain I would put up with the insomnia and red face. I have been taking Advil and Norco for the bone pains....but hate feeling so loopy.
Thanks for any input...
