I also knew I would relapse, given those factors.
My second tx was using Peg
, in the largest vial then available. It worked out to almost twice the standard dose prescribed for my body weight, hence the DoubleDose moniker. I used 1,200 mg./Riba, and saw very rapid drops in my red cell count. By month three I was on full Procrit, and ended up doing it 2x/week, at about 60,000 IU total/wk.
