I reported earlier in the year that my husband has started on the trial of the above drug. The side effects he experienced were bleeding and upset stomach. These were resolved but it would appear that as his blood counts come back to normal his neotrophils are getting low and he has to have GCSF injections three times a week. We should have now transferred to visits every three months but it is necessary for them to keep a watch on his neotrophil count and it may mean an increase in the number of injections. I just wondered if there is anyone else on the trial experiencing a similar problem. In himself he is feeling very well and we were both starting to get back a 'normal' life but this is worrying.
