From this study (3 months ago):
Altho my doctor is an excellent surgeon, he does not want to discuss food interactions with the chemotherapy drugs ... so I am doing it myself. I already know to not eat citrus fruits or drink green tea during the 4.5 months of chemo but what else should I avoid eating?
From this study (5 months ago):
Neulasta was used after a 4-day course of VD-PACE (velcade, dexamethasone, doxorubicin, cisplatin, cytoxan, etoposide) to regenerate white blood cells. On day 5 after neulasta I had intense lower back pain in pulsating waves that lasted for 1 day. It was day 8 after treatment VD-PACE ended
4 weeks later the VD-PACE cycle was repeated. This time, in preparation for stem cell collection, I received daily high dose shots of of neupogen. On day 6 I started having the same lower back pain I now identified as kidney stones. It lasted for under 2 days and the EXTREMELY painful symptoms disappeared completely again. Symptoms started 8 days after VD-PACE treatment ended
