Laura sounds like the Benylsta isn't holding you all the way to your next infusion, I'm sorry to hear that. Make sure you talk with your Doc about it.
As for the red and hot cheeks, I can totally relate to that, except my cheeks are like that daily. Some days, usually at night though, my cheeks become so red you'd think I was a cooked lobster. They get so hot that they feel like my cheeks are burning, really hot to the touch.
Donna, sorry to hear about the depression, I too, am having serious issues with depression on Benylsta. I get IV solumedrol prior to my infusions. I'm given IV Benadryl 150mgs to ward off my itching, tyelnol, then I'm given the solumedrol. I think you should ask your Dr to prescribe some for you.
I've heard that some patients get premeds and others don't. Hope your depression lessens.
You both hang in there!
