• Another 100 Days of Good Karma: Day 178 (Last Neulasta Injection)


    Monday, January 5, 2015

    Run/ Walk/ Bike/ Elliptical (Today:  0.00 miles;  Running Total: 113.00 miles)

    Day 178 of *Another* 100 Days of Good Karma.

    I received my last Neulasta injection today.  This shot, administered in my stomach, is my least favorite part of chemotherapy.  It helps rebuild my immune system, but oh… the price is high.

    In a lot of ways the Neulasta injection has been harder than chemotherapy.  I feel more achy and tired from it than from chemo alone.  This is the shot that caused terrible back spasms the first time I got it.

    So I spent another day on the couch, just counting down until I feel better.

    Today’s silver lining:  It’s the last one.

    What’s your silver lining today?  I love comments!

    I’m glad this is your last Neulasta injection and surgery comes soon. It will be great for you to get on with the next stages. I totally understand not being able to do the activities you are used to do and this will get better, believe me. We are in different couch potato situations and I know we will both get through our challenges. Praying for you.
