Hi all, I am looking for those of you who have done the dose dense AC treatments. How were your side effects and such? How did you do on the filgrastim? Any info appreciated, Amelia

    Hi, Amelia. I finished Dose Dense Chemo in May. I was really happy to have the whole process over sooner than later. You can find more info. concerning DD at Look at the article by Dr. Larry Norton in the first issue from this year. I had the normal side effects. I don't believe they were any more intense than the regular three week scheduling. I had no problem with filgrastim taken as the more frequent Nuepegen. Nuelasta which has a longer, less frequent dosage gives some people bone pain. There is a long thread concerning DD on the discussion boards at Hope this helps.
