Now that is useful info thank you...tho I'm sticking to Zometa.
i already self administer blood thinners and if needed filgrastim
had no idea you could self do the denusamab, but as it's only subcutaneous into the tummy, it's going to be easy xox often doesn't hurt at all and I find I can give my own drugs really slowly and less painfully, whereas the nurses might be too busy to do this so, much nicer
I was told I can do the denosumab injections myself at home, makes it much more convenient and one less trip to hospital. Worth asking if you or someone else is confident enough to do it for you (in my case, my partner does it). I now have a sharps bin in my bathroom though.
Thank you Carolyn and Nicky
Im not feeling ill and have my injection in a side room away from the chemo unit so not worried about being in the hospital.Good to know a cold won’t affect having the injection as long as my bloods come back as ok I assume.Thanks Didi
A cold in itself won't stop you having the injection, it's more like whether you go to the hospital, like Carolyn has said. I also have mine 6 weekly so if you're a few days late it won't matter too much.
Hi All does anyone know if you can have your monthly denosumab injection if you have a cold.?
I am due my 5th one on Friday but I feel like I could have a cold starting.Very annoying as I luckily rarely get them.thanks Didi x
