Help with WBC injections

Postby Steph20021 » Mon Mar 20, 2017 8:42 pm

I had my first cycle of gastrofil, a WBC booster, the last one was Saturday but today is Monday and I'm still as sick as ever, dry heaving, nausea and vomit.
When please tell me does it get better? Since I started them after chemo de access I've been sick so many days now.
The heaving cramps my belly because of all the surgeries I've had it hurts. Also, hard to keep pills down and swallow,pills like this :(
Help I feel so hopeless tonight. Sorry for the drama.

That sounds very unusual for Neupogen. Bone pain and fatigue are generally the only complaints.
I would guess it's something besides the Neupogen causing the vomiting. You absolutely should ask your oncologist to address your symptoms. It's possible to go through chemo with very little nausea if you find the combination of drugs that works for you. You may need to keep complaining to the oncologist until you get what works.
In the meantime stay on the anti nausea meds you have and don't let up, because it's harder to control once it gets hold. If you have some anxiety meds, they may help with the nausea too.
I hope you can calm the storm tonight and get some relief from the oncologist tomorrow.
