Thats a good reading for your neuts. I thought mine were good at 2.67 but that has put mine into perspective! My White blood count was ok 4.6 and Hb 116 so doing ok on the full dose.
Another round and no sickness ......yeah...as you say just waiting for the bone pain to kick in!
im also going to have biosulphates and hormone therapy so will be discussing this with consultant in a couple of weeks. I think it starts after radiotherapy.
Good luck with the SE

Hi Lovely Ladies,
On Friday I started Herceptin and had my second T (Paclitaxol), so far I haven’t suffered with SEs other than a slightly flushed face, some mild aches and pains and general tiredness…...phew!
Georgie – glad you started T, hope you stay on track now.
Jude – have you started on bisphosphonates yet? How are you getting on?
Hope everyone is doing well and SEs not causing too many issues - take care!

I had the flushed face on T, it kept flaring up, esp when I went outside.
It wasn’t itchy though just flushed and hot to the touch and looked a bit swollen around the eyes.
I rang up the chemo hotline and they told me it was fairly common and to take piriton and went down a couple of days afterwards.
Perhaps ring the chemo hotline and get their advice.

I had my first T yesterday.... yay! I had it at last. Only 75%, with only 50% steroids....
They gave me chlorphenamine, also known as piriton, to take up to 3 times a day. I called to ask them which symptoms it helped with... nurse I spoke to didn't know, but will get back to me.
So so far no achey legs or fatigue as it is only day 2, but my eyes are hurting a bit and I have a flushed face which is getting a bit hot and itchy.....
any clues Ladies?
Thank you so much xxx

Thank you for my birthday wishes. Yes I will be celebrating in the New Year once all this treatment is finished.
Luckily my actual birthday falls in my “good” week so a glass of bubbly might be on the cards!
