Back to West Clinic for a shot!

The day after every chemo they will have me come in for a Neulasta http://www.neulasta.com/ shot that will force my body to create new white blood cells and keep my white count up to reduce my risk of infection. The nurse said because it is forcing your body to make white blood cells it can cause your bones to ache. They have found that taking a Claritin D the day of treatment and 2 days after helps with that bone aching. So I'll take nausea meds (the nurse said to take them every 6-8 hrs and not let nausea get a hold of you), Claritin, vitamin, and steroid after each treatment!
