Chemo on Thursday and a shot in Friday to have bone marrow to start making white blood cells. What was your worst day after your chemo treatment?

    Everyone reacts differently. Take the nausea meds as directed, don't wait until you feel sick. Day 1, nausea, Day 2 and 3, worst days, tired, nausea, flu like symptoms, joint pain from the shot Day 4, got better. 5 very few symptoms, but still tired. BUT it was doable!!! And 10 years later... still no evidence of cancer!!! Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate and eat small amounts at a time. Wishing you minimal side effects!!! BUT it was doable!!! And 10 years later... still no evidence of cancer!!! Keep the questions coming, we are here for you!

    I had chemo on wed, shot on thurs. Sat and sun were my worst. I had muscle aches and bone pain from the shot. Take Claritin, it helps. You can do this! Prayers to you.

      I had chemo thrus, shot Friday. I had ringing in my ears and they suggested I take Claritin for the ringing, hoping that helps it is not really bad just annoying and I told my husband that his snoring is a blessing. I had muscle aches.

    24 hours after the neulasta shot was worst for me. This didn't change.

    I feel lucky as I never really had a worst day. Sure there were a few but nothing the same day with every chemo. treatment and shot.

    I'm on my first treatment. I've been lucky - no nausea. I'm on day 4. Evening of day 3 (after neulasta shot on day 2) I had bad muscle soreness that hurt badly to the touch. It's subsided today. Hopefully you will have my experience of nothing horrible just tiredness and weakness. Good luck!
