Just yesterday I noticed swelling in my feet up to my knees and hands. Up five pounds in four days, short of breath today. Also itchy...all over, but especially my hands and feet. I think I itch because of the swelling. This week my neutrophils have been too low for chemo, my Hb hangs around 10, my platlets are low normal (2 weeks ago I couldn't have chemo due to platelets too low). I've had a daily neupogen shot for 4 days. So basically I am retaining fluid for some reason. Has anyone had this problem with neupogen?
I did call my oncologist today and I held my neupogen for today. Kim
