Any one out there with any experience with Neumega? My husband gets one shot a day to stimulate platelet growth. It is helping his platelet count. Tomorrow will be two weeks since his last platelet transfusion. He is having awful side effects having gained 12 pounds of water weight from it. Now he is on a pill for that, too. He feels worse than ever (with the exception of when he got sick from the ATG).
Also, the Neumega does something to the red cells. It has something to do with the added plasma volume (over my head). I will ask the Dr. about that today. Just wondering if anyone had similar experience with this drug…Thanks, Laura
