I was diagnosed with primary peritoneal cancer the week before Christmas and started chemotherapy of taxol/carboplatin. I've had 2 chemo treatments so far, 21 days apart. The Neulasta shot given the day after chemo gives me severe bone pain, but only lasts 4-5 days. I also get a fever approximately 2 weeks after chemo which lasts 5-6 days. All labs are normal. The fever is what really gets me down. Is this normal after this type of chemo? Does everyone take Neulasta after their chemo? I'm scheduled to go to M.D.Anderson Cancer Center on March 20 and have surgery and debulking there. I'm staying down there for the rest of my chemo. Any advice will be appreciated.
