Re: New to chemotherapy FEC bolus is it painful

It's not sore but your arm may ache a little over the vein.

Make sure you take some layers with you. I was absolutely freezing and shook all through the injection of this drug. Maybe it had been in the fridge. I only had it once due to side effects but my arm was tender for months afterwards
