I'm typing on a Kindle, so I can't type a lot. It is a long story and I don't like Apple right now.
I met with my oncologist on Thursday. She changed my schedule to two treatments per cycle. I got chemo on Friday, gave myself the Neulasta shot on Saturday, will not get treatment this Friday, and will go for the second treatment next Friday. So basically, I will get treatment every other week with a Neulasta shot in between.
And yes, I took the Claritin. This time the pain focused on my legs. No back spasms, so far!
By the way, you should keep Claritin far away from young children because they might use scissors to eat 8 of them thinking they are candy and hide the wrappers in their pillowcase, so that Mom doesn't find out. As a matter of fact, it happened to my cousin today. And yes, her daughter is fine.
