Day -9 (Mar 31) - Filgrastim injections start

Not too much to report for today.  Over the next several days, I will be receiving injections of Filgrastim which stimulates the production of stem cells in my bone marrow. I feel a bit nauseous and have been battling a pretty good headache but all is good and manageable at this point.  

The medication layout for the next few days is as follows:

Day -9

  • Filgrastim
  • Dexamethasone
  • Ondansetron
  • Pantoprazole


Day -8

  • Filgrastim
  • Dexamethasone
  • Ondansetron
  • Pantoprazole


Day -7

  • Filgrastim
  • Dexamethasone
  • Ondansetron
  • Pantoprazole


Day -6 will have an extra 3 medications, but I'll update later for those.  

Lauren will be going out with some of the group tomorrow to do some site seeing here in Puebla.  I will probably stay in as I am uncertain how things will progress for me tomorrow.  I hope the team has a great time.  

Be sure to post any questions you may have.
