Now, I am quite aware of the bone pain associated with these injections but I've learned there are other side effects as well but they claim that the side effects of G-CSF are usually quite mild (Like hell-the bone pain is excruciating!). They say to relieve the pain with Tylenol. I tried it, it didn't work. When I settled in for the night, I finally broke down and went for the Vicodin!
And there are additional side effects to look forward to that include:
- a skin rash and reddening around the injection site
- Feeling sick
- A high temperature (fever) and chills
Geez, will the fun never cease?
