kimmek Posted October 24, 2004 Share Posted October 24, 2004 Hi All Has anyone experience severe pain from these shots? The doc told mom this was to be expected and she could expect to notice pain in her lower back and in the rib cage kind under the breast across her front. she has had 1 or 2 of the shots, but she was just borderline with her counts. The last visit though her RBC was down a bit more (I cannot remember the exact number) but she wanted her to get the shot every week during the 3 weeks in between chemo. She had her second one this past wens. She really never had much pain before But today it has been really bad, I can actually say as well as she that this is the worst pain of anything she has experienced since starting her treatment. I have given her 10mg oxyIR every 2 hours as well as a xanex to calm her down (she panics bad when she doesnt know why she is hurting). This has eased it up some, but if she coughs the pain in her rib cage all across her entire front and thru to her mid back is bad. She has not moved in almost 3 hours afraid if she does the pain will come back bad again. Does this sound familiar to anyone here? I asked her if she wanted to go to ER, and Mom hates that worse than anything, but she said she could not live like this all day and if it didnt get better we could go. But if the pain is from the shot she can handle it, Its the not knowing where its coming from that scares us. Thanks all for any input on this God bless Kim Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
