For this information. My husband will be on medicare in November (with his work insurance as supplemental) so we need to determine if neupogen self administered is paid for by Medicare..... He was told he would have to go in 3 days in a row to get a shot of the neupogen -- I would think self administered would be less costly -- though the nurse at the oncology room told him she did not think insurance would cover it because it would be more costly -- I just don't see that at all. So we are going to check into it ourselves.

We were told he could no longer get the neulasta because it could cause spleen damage -- though I ahve read that neupogen is also likely to cause the same problem -- ruptured spleen.....

I think anyone with any kind of cancer should be given an honorary nursing degree -- with everything we learn:)

Thank you again for all of your guidance... I am so happy you are in a place that you love so well -- it is all about quality of life. It sounds like you have everything well under control and have a great system and great support. Have a wonderful holiday!!!
