DebsSky Posted November 22, 2004 Share Posted November 22, 2004 Hi All: Have not been on the board for quite a while, hope everyone is doing well, will be checking and reading posts for a bit. My Mom is okay....but not as well as she could be. This past little while has been stressful and I have become complete caregiver to my Mom right now. I had her move in with me thus, the reason why I have not been on the board. She has had her chemo delayed again which is getting completely discouraging to her to say the least. Her WBC nad Neutrphils are fine, just her platelets have bottomed out now. Anyway to make a long story short and get to the question, what experiences have you had with Neupogen shots? They have been causing my Mother extreme bone pain. Is this normal? Also, they prescribed her Gabapentin to alleviate the pain, which does work, but has a tendancy to wear off too fast. I was wondering what the dosage ranges are for this med. and can she be safely increased? Right now thay have her on 300 mg. every 12 hours which doesn't touch the pain except for a few hours after taking it. Any thoughts, ideas, opinions would be greatly appreciated....thanks guys, you are the best!! Prayers for all, Deb Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
