I would like to hear from anyone who has experienced bone pain following receipt of a Nulasta injection. Please state the location of the pain, its severity, and the length of time the pain persisted. Also, kindly let me know the drug or drugs, if any, that may have been prescribed to treat that specific pain. Thank you.
I think you might be asking for too many specifics. We are not health professionals and you couldn't use any of our experiences or data for a lawsuit, etc. You could try your question again asking, asking if anyone has had a similar experience. Perhaps then you will get some responses. Regards - EJ23
Yes! I started chemo, 8rounds,but after I got the nuesta shot, my bones started hurting immediately, that was in 2011. I am cancer free at the moment but have just been diagnosed with RA. I've complained about back pain since 20 11 after getting nuesta shot, now is confirmed RA. I was looking at nuesta and RA because I know that is what caused it. I remember writing in a journal in 2011 saying the nuesta shot was causing extreme back pain, now same area, worse pain now, extremely painful, and I have RA now. I'm an attractive 42yr old that can't even clean my condo without being in extreme pain everyday, I'm upset and this is not a quality of life, I hurt everyday and sometimes wonder if it was worth it to live with such pain having to do that nuesta shot. My life will never be the same again,as I sit here hurting now. Shame on you nuesta! It ruined my quality of life!
My husband was given Neulasta which caused severe pain, that lead to his death. Thepain was in his back and persisted till his death. He was given additional pain meds to alleviate the back pain. This caused his bowels to lock up. This is a very dangerous medication . I am interested in legal representation, if someone knows of anyone or a class action suit in progress please respond.
This is my second go around with hodgkins. I previously received neulasta shots to go with chemo and stayed in pain through entire ordeal. This time I was diagnosed in Dec 2017 and started chemo immediately. Neulasta was recommended by my Dr but the insurance company would not approve it. I've been on chemo for 5 months now and it's almost as if I'm not sick zero complications and no pain.
Now I am preparing for a stem cell transplant to begin next week. I was given a neulasta shot (self administered) and I lay here in bed with the worst back and leg pain I've ever had. Have not slept for more than 20 mins straight all night due to the pain. Now I've read others accounts about pain not leaving, very scary. Hopefully will be able to follow up with report of pain completely gone much like the first-time 7 years ago.
