Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 months ago):
Post - chemo skin is heavily laden with blackheads, which were not present before or during chemo. Herceptin is still an active treatment.
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
From this study (5 months ago):
before taking these (TC chemo, then tamoxifen 3 years, letrozole 2 years)
my creatinine was 60, GFR 90; now after 5 years my creatinine is 85, eGFR just > 60
will it ever improve?
