Karen, a YCS board member, submitted the following experience about her husband Mark:
Procrit seemed to help with raising Mark's red-blood-cell counts, though it takes a few weeks, longer than Neupogen for the white cells. Procrit caused some bone pain, though less pain than Neupogen. Injection-site discomfort was similar to Neupogen.
Matt,a YCS board member, submitted the following experience about his wife Kara:
Kara received weekly injections of Procrit. So far they have not resulted in a quick rebound of her red blood cells. Her bone marrow may be too "wiped out." We have not experienced any adverse side effects.
