Re: Phesgo injection

Hi the injection is in the upper thigh. My skin always reacts to anything, makeup etc so I was not surprised when my thigh and buttock got a bit swollen but only for 24 hrs and it wasn't uncomfortable 😊

Hello, 

I take it that the injection is a sub-cut in the buttock? 😕 Seems a shame. The Herceptin sub-cut is in the thigh.

Re: Phesgo injection

Hi Mags I will be thinking of you on Saturday. It is my 2nd injection this week and I honestly found the 1st  one  really straightforward and so so much better than IV. I have been on the treatment for 18 months so great to hear from someone who has been on the treatment for such a period of time

Re: Phesgo injection

Had my first injection yesterday. All fine a bit of stinging and a swollen thigh and buttock 🙂 last night but otherwise fine. So so so much better than having it IV and the anxiety of finding a vein every three weeks.  Hope others also find it works for them

Re: Phesgo injection

Hi,

I qualify for this so will ask at my next treatment.

Might take a while for my hospital to get it. I've dodged a port so far but very much looking forward to not having to have one fitted.

Phesgo injection

Hi  is anyone else due to have this injection instead of herceptin and pertuzumab IV? I am so looking forward to not having the search for a vein and hours of treatment. I am due to have it in 2 weeks time, be good to hear others experience of it.
