Have you asked about switching to Neulasta? It would mean only one injection the day after each chemo....I have had it for ages and have never had low WBC.....I've been lucky....you might want to ask why your doctor prefers one over the other...what is your chemo cocktail..?

Hugs, Nancy

That's the chemo cocktail I had 3 years ago, with my first go round of bc..... I haven't had any insurance problems then or now...although I know it's about $6-7000.00 per injection...

Wishing you the best with your treatment...
Hugs, Nancy
