Has anyone here had to have the daily injections of the drug Leukine, to boost WBC levels, prior to me starting chemo my white cell was 3.1 so to say I differently needed this drug, but the side effects are terrible, fatigue, loss of appetite, low grade fever, just to say a few, but it did bring my levels back to normal, on my 9th out of 10 injections, I got a allergic reaction, skin rash and hives for 48 hrs, now they are afraid to give me anymore shots,I must say since not getting them I actually feel normal good appetite and energy level is back. Has anyone out there experienced anything like this. My next scheduled chemo is feb 1st.
Does anyone know of someone on these boards comes from Connecticut, it would be nice to talk to someone nearby,as I know of no one of my own.
