I got my first neupogen shot this morning. I will have one a day until my white count starts to grow rapidly. It is a sub cu injection and I opted to have it in my stomach where there's a nice layer of fat. I didn't feel anything. The gauge of the needle is so fine that it's like a mild mosquito bite and I asked the nurse to push the plunger slowly. She did a great job. I showered and had my dressing changed. It will be daily now since we're using paper tape. I feel like my skin has been ripped off with that other stuff.
I've been dealing with constipation. It seems that it's a normal thing with this treatment. I take lots of pills and I'm sure some of them are the problem. I take an anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-ulcer and some of my usual things too.
The biggest news for me this morning is that my platelet count is at 106! I highly doubt I'll need a transfusion. This is going so well that I just can't believe it. I had a great night's rest last night. I saw an amazing sunset, too, that was just spectacular. So, Boston Clam Chowder for lunch. What do you think? I hope it's out of a can!!
