Discussions that mention neupogen

Cancer: Lung board

Melissa, My mom also had to use procrit after starting Gemzar and Taxotere. Like Stan her RBC was always low and the procrit did not seem to make it come back up but maybe stopped it from dropping even more. Being that was her 4th line treatment I think her poor body was just wiped out from it all. She gave herself the injections as she did with the neupogen. She did not have to use either until she got to that chemo. Hope you are doing ok. I have not been posting much as I have so much to catch up on after 2 1/2 years of letting everything go to be there for my mom.You and everyone here remain in my prayers. JanMarie
