[QUOTE=Glenn B;2796000]Joyce,

I went thru treatement (48 weeks) at age 55. I did have a lot of side effects.
My white count did go way down but I was lucky, I didn't get any infections. I did get anemia from low red\hemoglobin\hemocrit. This knocked me for a loop. Was finally put on Procrit (another injection you have to give yourself) and that helped. I had problems with my thyroid prior to treatment which became worse during treatment. I had problems with sleeping and was put on Lunesta for that. I developed anxiety\depression problems and tried a bunch of medications for that. There weer other things I can't remember them all.

I did feel pretty miserable for the 48 weeks but there were times when I was ok. My doctor told me that they were there basically to treat my side effects. So I let them know all of them.

Now that it's over, I'm glad I did it.....If I had to do it again.....I don't know !!
