I take neulasta every other week, when disconnected from 5FU, the next day. my husband gives it to me to save me an extra trip to the Dr. I was told that due to it relating to bone marrow, your long bones might hurt the next day. I am usually wiped out that day from coming off of treatment, but my legs did hurt alot the first 7 cycles, now I am used to it, and its not so bad, when using Tylenol with it. To me it usually only hurts tyhe next day.
I did not know of any problems with it, and my counts have been fine, infact, thats about the only blood count that is ok!!!
